I'm excited, my 11 year old came home from Boy Scouts last night with the task of taking $21 in camping fees and buying food for 4 meals for 3 boys for his next camping trip this weekend. I expect this will be a real eye opener for him.

I've seen his menu, and I know he'll be able to do it, but I think it will be a great lesson for him to go through the aisles with a calculator and see how fast the money goes.

Always ;-)
