Four Dollars

One day my family and I were going to a store in Ottumwa. I had four dollars I planned to spend. I found a stuffed toy. When we got to the checkout, the woman told me that it cost one dollar. I smiled. I had enough money to buy my stepbrothers, Jordan, Matteo, and Tyler, their own toys. So I bought three more and handed them out. On the way home I felt really good.
