The girls decided they wanted to get a guinea pig. We went to the pet store and priced it. We decided they would need about $100.00 for the guinea pig and supplies. So, they started filling a spaghetti jar to save. I started checking Craigslist thinking we might find a cage. Surprisingly, someone posted a guinea pig and a cage for $35! The girls had $36 saved up.
I was a little worried about purchasing it from Craigslist, but when I spoke to the seller I felt okay about it. She was a grandma who purchased it for her grandchildren, but they didn't up being that interested in it. When we met with her I told her how the girls had been saving their money and had just enough. She said they could have it for $30, so they would have a little money left to buy her some hay or something.
Tonight I got these cute shots of Cadence.
