Yesterday, I had the wonderful experience to take Spencer to a local bank and open a savings account with him.
Spencer is one who just holds onto his money, never really spends any of it well, except for a few packs of hockey cards here and there. :-)
He has been asking to go to a bank to open a savings account.
With there being no school yesterday it was the perfect day to open an account with him.
He was nervous but quite excited that it was finally going to happen.
The whole process took about twenty minutes and he left with his little passbook, and a few other goodies that the bank gives the children (stickers, erasers, pen).
He is already processing how much he would like to have in his account by the end of the year.
For a child who is only ten, I am so very proud of him.
