✢ Yogurt and Yields

The children got a few funds, with which they were nudged to learn about stocks and investing.  Overwhelmed myself, we made an appointment with our friends at Family Asset Management here in Charleston.  Dan Russler gave homework for each child to record information on five companies of their choice.   Being that the word “homework” is seemingly tabu among this crowd, I thought this was going to be a chore.  We took off to Tutti Frutti to grab some frozen yogurt inspiration.

We had a great time.  Long after we devoured our treat, they were glassy-eyed but still at it.  They seem to be Wall Street junkies in the making!  Retirement here we come! (Well, one day) ❈
