One thing I forgot to mention in my post about our not-yet-finished house: Drew wanted to help contribute to the down payment.
It was the last item of business after an hour and a half of paperwork in triplicate. Mark got out the checkbook and made the first part of our down payment. Meanwhile, Drew was playing in my purse, taking great delight in dumping everything out and putting things back in bit by bit according to his own sense of structure and organization.
So it happened that a few seconds after Mark placed the check on the saleswoman's desk, Drew reached up and plunked down two bucks right beside it.
It really wouldn't do much to improve our monthly payments, so I took the dollars back. But we appreciated Drew's helpful thought all the same.
