Last Friday Catherine's backpack mysteriously contained 3 little Matchbox-type cars. I figured she just "accidentally" took them from school. So - I sent back the 3 little cars today in her backpack with a note to the teacher.
They were returned with a note - they are HERS and they're what she selected from the Prize Cart and bought with her "Saints Dollars" that she earned for good behavior in class!!
Awww, and we thought we had a budding thief on our hands!!! I'm sorry I ever doubted her!!! (Then again, she didn't explain exactly how they got into her backpack very coherently, so I'm not sure she quite understands the whole monetary transaction concept. She thinks money is little plastic cards.)
I'm sure that my husband will be proud that she selected CARS for her first ever purchase!
(I haven't seen any toys in Elisabeth's backpack.... I guess she didn't earn enough Saints Dollars to buy anything??? She probably OWES them Saints Dollars.... heh.)
Update: No, no, no, it's not a religious program!! Remember, we live in the town of Saint Michaels, so we've got the head archangel in charge of things around town!! All the school teams are the Saints. So you think I should file an ACLU lawsuit? ;-)
