VyStar Kids Club

VyStar Credit Union just started a Kids Club to promote kids to save.  When you open a Kids Club interest bearing savings account they give the kids a book mark, place mat, ID card, a deposit booklet, three compartment bank, two tickets to Marineland, choice for a mailed statement or e-statement that the kids can access and the kids have access to the coin counting machine. 
 We found out about this on Saturday and we thought it was a great idea for The Cisco Kid to join. When we got home The Cisco Kid gathered up all his change and put it in his Fireman boot ready for deposit.

Yesterday when the Cisco Kid got out of vacation bible school we went to the bank to open a Kids Club Accounts. He had so much fun through the whole process. He acted like an adult. The Account representatives only wanted his birth certificate and SS card from me. Everything else she spoke directly to him. Asking him for his address, phone numbers, and then his favorite part was signing his name on the pad for signature conformation. Once he was done with all the paperwork, he took his fireman boot over to the coin counting machine and poured it in. He watched the machine tally his change and it gave him a receipt. He then took the receipt over to the Teller so she could deposit it into his new savings account.

We are waiting for the account representative.
The three compartment bank.  One compartment is for Sharing. The other compartment is for saving. The last compartment is for spending. 
The machine that counts change. 
He thought is was so cool to dump it all in the machine. 
       This is one of those life lessons. Hopefully he will grow up with a good sense of saving is better than spending.

WHAT DID YOU SAY????? You are only seven!!!!

One of The Cisco Kids new shows he has started watching is Victorious on Nick. The craziest thing came out of his mouth today as he was watching the episode Victorious Zombie. It is where a zombie mask gets stuck to her face and she has to go on stage to sing the song Finally Falling. Then her friends finally get the proper solution to get the mask off. The mask is removed and she goes back to finishing her performance. The song is cute and The Cisco Kid dances to it every time he hears it. Today I asked him if he liked her and out of my little boys mouth was, Yeah!!! She is Smokin Hot!!! There was dead silence in the air for about fifteen seconds. I meant do you like the way she sings. I didn't expect that response at all. That hit me like a ton of bricks. I could not believe my ears. So of course I had to find out if he was just repeating something he heard or if he really knew what that ment. I had to ask. Son! What do you think Smokin Hot means? He said, it is a girl that is very, very pretty. He could tell that I was freaked out about what he said and then he started to back pedal and said, mom, I think you are smokin hot too. I'm thinking to myself. Yea!!! Right!!! Nice recovery.

VBS Camp

VBS camp started this morning. It will be another busy day for the Cisco Kid. He will be at camp until 12:00 noon and then we have a lunch date with some of our friends. Then after our lunch date we have a swimming play date at our house. For a seven year old his social agenda is quite busy. I hate to see his social calendar at fifteen.

The Camps theme is the High Seas.  On stage are the pirates that did a short skit and then they watched a movie. 
This was their first activity for the day.
