The iPod Quest Comes to Fruition

Did I ever tell you how amazing Alex is?

So here's the conclusion to the story: After four weeks of washing cars, mowing lawns, and doing odd jobs, Alex earned $107.10 total. Since he was saving 30% (10% to tithing, 10% to savings, and 10% to mission fund), he had $74.97 in his iPod fund.

His goal was to buy an Nano, which would have cost $95. But after all that hard work, he decided that the Nano wasn't as cool as he initially thought. He also realized that he could buy both an iPod (a cheaper version) and a Nintendo DS game. The deal was sealed.

He bought an iPod Shuffle and a Star Wars game for his hand-held Nintendo. We bought them on Amazon and he about went crazy waiting four days for them. I've never seen him so excited as he was when the packages arrived.

So there you have it. Alex is pretty much the man. I can't rave enough about how proud I am of him.

Here he is with his sweet purchases, sitting on his money maker:

Thanks again to everyone who participated.

The strange thing is that I haven't been able to get him to mow our lawn for the last two weeks...
