Training to be salesmen

They say kids are more advanced these days. Kids know how to use computers better than most adults. They can beat the over 30 crowd at video games. Kids are masters of manipulation. They are sly. They are friendly and o, so cute! This makes them perfect for what seems to be the most needed skill for the beginning of the school year. FUNDRAISING! One thing I didn't bank on is that my kids would be transformed into mini Donald Trumps in order to fund various activities in their lives. They learn to peddle all sorts of stuff. We are currently selling Sally Foster gifts/wrapping as well as coupon books for soccer. I'd rather pay a higher fee for sports than sell. Too bad that is not really a choice.

The one reason we are hitting the pavement with Sally Foster this year is that the funds go directly towards Drew's trip to Big Bend next month! The trip is pricey and so despite our dislike of bugging friends, we will sell as much as we can. Do you want to buy anything?

Mark here... Figured I'd go ahead and put the link on here to buy the Sally Foster stuff, if you're interested. If you're in the Waco area, though, you can call Regina with your order and I think you don't have to pay shipping. I don't really know how all that works. Regina does all that- I'm just the "tech guy."

You can win an ipod by using the online feature. Other prizes are security cameras, desktop music systems, TV, Game Boys and XBOX 360. Pretty nifty, huh? Do you remember selling stuff and earning a dorky pen? That's what I remember!
