Thursday

Yesterday Ben asked how money was made, so today I took him to the Federal Bureau of Engraving and Printing in Haslet (ft worth). We learned a lot! Dollar notes are only made in two locations: ft worth and DC. 60% of our Currency goes overseas.   Crane Co, the same stationary company makes all the "paper" the notes are made of. It's not paper but a cloth. Star notes are the replacement notes that were found defective after a serial number was printed. Every bill that is printed in Fort Worth has a FW on it. There were no free samples. :-(

While we were at the hour plus tour, where no camera or cell phones are allowed, Pete was desperately trying to get in touch with me so we could finalize our house offer.


The house we are getting is AMAZING! Perfect for our family!
We also found a great park in Roanoke where my guys like to play.




This afternoon we attended Brittany's track meet. She smoked the 2mi with a 13:58 time and came in first sprinting at the end. Her 1 mi was an easy 6:35 with a great kick at the end, again placing first! We were so happy to see her races, and looking forward to the next ones.
