    Today I cashed checks and deposited my own paycheck. Another thing I did was put extra cash from the bankers into the class bank. I also played the lemonade stand game.

    Today I passed out the paycheck to everyone. Then I put my paycheck and my bonus money into the bank. After this I looked at some examples for our Public Service Announcment. Then I played the lemonade stand game and learned to not over buy materials. I played the 7 days twice and lost money each time but the second time I lost less than the first becuase I took stuff away from the first time.
