Opening a Bank Account

Yesterday I brought the boys to Bangor Savings Bank to open their very own savings account. They brought their own money they had earned to deposit. The bank has a great program for kids. To open a savings account they need just one dollar. The bank then matches that dollar when they open an account. Then every year on their birthday the bank gives them a "birthday buck". There are options to convert over to a CD. Isaiah had to sign his own name to the paper work, he felt very important. After the accounts were open they got an account book and also a cute little piggy bank.

Isaiah with his eyes shut (this seems to be a regular thing now with pictures) and Elijah all smiled with the new account specialist.
