Shhh- Birthday Gift (top secret!)

So don’t tell Big Hugaboo what his birthday gift is… but I’ll tell you!  This year we got him a Lego WeDo Robotics kit!!!  I’m so excited for him to open this.  His birthday is this weekend so he’ll get to open it in a few days, but man I want to peek at it and play a bit!  We got the homeschool version so it comes with a binder that has various activities in it.  Also comes with software so he’ll be able to learn some basic computer programming.  Of course, we want it to be a learning opportunity as well so last week and this week we’re learning about simple machines.  We even made a spoon catapult this afternoon!  As soon as he opens his gift I’ll post pictures!

Ok, this is a random mommy post.  I just had to mention my excitement over saving money at Target today.  They had individual cups of oatmeal on sale for $1.02 each.  And buy 5 get a $5 gift card sale.  PLUS I had coupons for a $1 off of each one.  Are you doing the math?  Let’s see….

$1.02 x 10 packages = $10.20

$1 off each package  = $0.20 owed

Gift cards rec’d = $10.00

Profit = $9.80

So, I actually MADE money on the deal and came home with 10 packages of oatmeal!  We are now completely stocked up for oatmeal when nuclear disaster or a random bird flu hits ;)
