Ha ha, that's actually a good question. If it was Claudia's, Claudia might be annoyed that she's always putting it behind her ear since some people are germophobes like that (but probably not Claud). I don't see Kristy bringing a purse or backpack to every meeting.

^That would be cool and good advertising. I am thinking of the health fair in Logan's Story. The BSC had their booth dedicated to safe baby-sitting tips. They could have handed out a pencil with each memo. I also just read "Karen's New Holiday." In that book, Karen points out that window displays are already back to school themed. In The Summer Before, of course, MA almost falls off the ouch when she sees a commercial for "Pen and Ink" (stationery store) showing back to school supplies. My point is the BSC probably could have reigned in both money and publicity had they thought to have a true Fall into Fall, baby-sitting related fund-raiser, including logo school supplies. Maybe I like this idea because it would be cool to have such a pencil.
