Swing Set Purchased!

If you haven't read about how my son has been saving his money you can read it here.

After saving since February he finally reached his $600 goal to get his swing set thanks to friends and family birthday presents and other holiday gifts.

He has had a picture of it that he looks at every day. I went to order the one he chose and the price had went up to $800! So I had to explain this to him and encourage a very upset 4 year old to pick a different one.

He finally picked one in his price range, because he actually collected more than his goal thanks to friends and family.

Then I explained to him that we have to order it and then wait for it to come (I told him this in advance but he still wanted it now). A lot of the gifts we got were in the form of gift cards.

If you ever have to do something like this be aware that Wal-Mart online only accepts 4 gift cards per transaction! We had no idea this was the case, but we were able to make it work!

So now we are waiting for it to ship to the store sometime between the 11th and the 22nd and Z is very proud of himself and very excited.
