Growing Up

 I’m planning to do a unit on money with the kids for school this year and what better way to begin than at the bank!?  So, we took the kids to the bank yesterday to get their first bank accounts. It was pretty exciting. Julia wasn’t as excited as Ryan in the beginning but when she was handed her very own bank card I could see that she was pretty thrilled. So, of course, I had to photo document the whole thing!

Signing their first official document (except it’s actually Ryan’s 2nd since he signed his passport).

The kids with our most awesomest bank lady.

And so begins a life long journey of financial education.

    It is so exciting to do all the grown up things in order. After potty training, there is just a whole line of things they get to learn and do, some more exciting than doing dishes, like getting a bank card.

    Excited for them!! They are truly ready for this! How great is that to have a relationship with your banking lady that would lead into such personalized care!! I wish all bankers took such interest in budding investors!!! (or old crotchety ones!!)

    Love it! I opened accounts for the boys when they were born, but I think having them go to the bank is so much more educational. We’re working on getting them to save some, give some and keep some. Mostly they just want to keep and spend so this might take some time. lol.

  4. A wonderful post of the joy in seeing your children experience aspects of money and what better way than to have their own bank accounts.

    A proud day for all of you 🙂
