With all the costs of activities for the kids, it's a great idea to get them involved in raising a little money to support their gymnastics/soccer/iTunes habits.
Evidently, my kids are a step ahead of us with a plan to raise an easy $20,000.
It's a bit unorthodox, but ransom notes may be the next fund raiser your school needs to consider.
By the way, I'd recommend having your children be more specific in their ransom notes than ours were. "That 1 tree in L.A." is pretty vague. I've been to L.A., and there are at least a dozen trees.
This isn't a serious fundraising idea. duh.
I couldn't just throw this note away when we found it. Obviously, the children were playing their usual games of pretending to kidnap and murder and steal and blow things up. (Clearly they're watching way too many old Disney flicks from the 70's.)
After all, we want to cherish these special memories. So out came the camera and the laptop to memorialize their ransom attempt forever.
You should use your blogs as well to preserve fond moments like these.
Ah. Fond moments indeed.
