Disney on Ice

We took our kids to watch Disney on Ice today. It's a reward for our oldest daughter who has been so diligent in her studies and her responsibilities at home. We make it a point to give her something every now and then to show her how much we appreciate her and the things that she does, big or small, to make our lives at home wonderful.

We didn't tell her until yesterday after school because we wanted to surprise her. She was so happy and excited last night.

The show was great for kids and Abby was screaming at the top of her lungs calling out the names of the different disney characters that appear on the stage. Cheryl had a wonderful time and they both loved the fireworks at the end of the show. Disney really puts on great shows and this is definitely one of them.

Cheryl bought a little mermaid necklace and some coloring books. She used money from her savings and it's wonderful to see that she just didn't buy it outright. She thought about it long and hard before making a decision. I am so happy that she now has this concept of spending money only after thinking things through and not just out of whim. I sure hope and pray that she continues to grow with this mindset.
