Do you ever think about what you’d do if you won the lottery? No? Just me?
Well I think about it at times. Of course, to win, I’d actually have to play. I may need to get on that.
Nevertheless, it’s fun to think about silly things during heavy times. So we lightened the mood on the way to school today with a silly check in question. I then asked my students the same question. In years past it would have been a million dollars, but we may as well dream big and wish for a billion instead.
So when I asked the kids what they would do diferently if they had a billion dollars this is what they said…
Finley: I’d buy a sports team, like the Bulls or the Chiefs and have homes in cool places to visit. I’d also get a pool.
Cooper: I’d build a mansion and have a plane to take me wherever I wanted to go.
Ellen: I’d travel, by a zoo and have my own room.
Fletcher: I’d build a zipline from our house to the pond. I’d have a gorilla and whole bunch of lizards too.
Fiona: I’d put a stadium in my backyard to play football and soccer and all the outdoor sports. I’m with Finley, I’d want a pool too.
Bryan: I’d get a chef for Nancy, I’d pay off our house, buy a vacation home and build a sports complex at St James so I could run multi sport camps out of it.
Mommy: I would have a chef and a live in maid so I never had to cook or clean ever again.
Some of the answers I got from my students were fun too! Here are a few highlights:
I would invest 50% of it, tithe 10% of it and use the rest to travel and go to college.
I would buy an auditorium for St. James Academy.
I would build a music studio in my house.
I would buy several planes so I could go wherever I want whenever I want.
It was a fun and silly check in question for both my biological kids and my school kids!
What would you do with a billion dollars?
