Biz Town

On Tuesday, Sydney and I got to head down
the Tempe with the 4th and 5th graders
to attend Biz Town. Biz Town is an awesome
'city' that teaches the kids how to work,
earn a paycheck, pay taxes, and then do a
little shopping! It is a great learning experience!
I was over the Wells Fargo and had 7 employees
(a CEO, CFO, a Savings Officer, and 4 tellers).
I joked with Sydney that since I once (many
moons ago) worked at Wells Fargo, that I
should wear my old name tag and hand out
my business cards...don't ask me why I kept them.
She said that would be embarrassing, so I didn't.
Sydney was the CEO of the Print Shop in town and
she gave a speech at the town hall meeting
and had a television interview. She was one cute
business owner! After that, we headed to Glendale
for some roller skating & pizza. Fun! Fun! Fun!

That sound like such a great but cute and fun idea!! We really need something like that around here- teach some young people how to work! (I just sounded SO old- LOL!)
