Money, Money, Money....MONEY!

Randy bought this jar at a antique shop about 8 years ago and we have been saving all of our coins sense then. We didn't know at first what we were going to do with the money, but as we started thinking we thought of Brock and how his savings account would love to have this money in it......so we are giving all the money to Brock. Brock was over joyed with excitement when we started to dump all the money on the floor. He couldn't wait to start touching all the coins. We called the bank and they said we needed to separate all the coins so they could put it in their counting machine.....So we did just that...




...It took us a couple of days to separate the coins, but we finally finished...






...Along the way of separation Randy came across some unique coins he had forgotten about. He was really excited to look at all of them...I didn't know he liked coins so much.? :)...


...We finally got them all separated in their very own zip lock bag. We hope they don't bust through the bottom. We went the extra mile to weigh them. The dimes and nickels weigh about 8-9 lbs, quarters weigh 21 lbs, and the pennies weigh a whopping 28 lbs. We then got online to see if we could determine from the weight of the coins how much money we have. It seems we are going to have around 6-$700.00. We are totally stoked for this. It will be awesome to add to Brock's savings account for his future. We will be taking the coins to the bank on Monday to find out how much lute we have...



...So for a fun game...How much money do you think there is?...


...Back in 1999 my mom gave us this...

My mom will be proud we finished it! Randy's face doesn't look to exciting in the picture, but he was very excited! How much do you like his Kyle Corver hairstyle? Lol.
