Lots of Coins for Katie

We have the best customers at the quilt store. Do you remember this post? We decided we wanted to help collect coins to bring Katie home. There was even a post about it on Katie's blog.  She is so cute:)

It has been one month and look at this jar. It is almost over the top.  It had some green money in it too. My mom already put that into a special envelope because one of them was a $50.00 bill. Can you believe it!!!

So we decided it was time to count the coins.

First I dumped them all out on the tray.

Then I started sorting the coins into piles.

Sometimes I picked them up and sometimes I moved them around with my finger.

So far there are a lot of quarters and dimes.  Stay tuned for the counting part...

SARAH! I love this! My boys were SO excited to read this with me this morning before school. We count our money exactly the same way, and they feel like we're famous because you're blogging about us. Thank you so much for collecting Coins for Katie! I cannot wait to read more about it. I think when Katie gets here we'll have to take a road trip to Ohio to meet you!
