wordful wednesday: she's in the money

i get the feeling i've talked about our $50 note before, but anytime's a good time for trivia, so here we go!

this is miss 18 with her 'earnings' from drumming tuition

i love that after learning the drums herself for the past 9 years, she's passing on her talents, AND making money in the process!

note the crisp clear, close-in photo - care of my fabby new portrait lens
- i just can't get enough of it!

so, sir apirana ngata is on our $50 note

he was a prominent new zealand lawyer and politican of maori decent, who lived from 1874 unti 1950

he was the first maori to complete a degree at a new zealand university, AND the first new zealander (of any ethnicity) to complete a double degree

on the countdown front:

29 sleeps til i finish at work
31 sleeps to oz and tara

miss 13 earning plenty and going without her cellphone this month all in the quest to have plenty of spending money

miss 12 on track for her stay at the 'i have no money' hotel in flat broke city

 for more wordful wednesday, visit angie over @ seven clown circus

wow that is a big committment from Miss 13 regarding the phone. I am super impressed. However Miss 12 being on track for her stay at "I have no money hotel" honestly made me laugh out loud....

ohhhhhwell done Miss 18 for making money from her skills like that...

Congrats to them all! I could never go without my cell phone for a month, so way to go miss 13! i was a percussionist all through HS and college, so i think it's great miss 18 is teaching drums :)

Congrats to Miss 13, she's definitely on a roll. And I'm jealous of your money, it's so PRETTY! Ours is kind of boring in comparison.
