I bought Thomas, Philip and Sarah each a bank that actually counts the money as you put it in the bank. Philip is so excited about his money, he turns down treats and asks for the money instead. Sarah just lost a tooth, and she and Philip were so excited to see the money go into the bank. It wasn't so long ago I couldn't get them to save money a day. If they had it, they had to spend it NOW!!! Philip is talking about saving his allowance and birthday money towards a new bike. He may have enough money by Christmas. Now that's progress!
