Of course, she learned a great deal from us as well. For example, while she knew canning, she was amazed by our dehydrator. She also could not figure out why her daughter insisted on making her own bread instead of going to the store.

Via the trust you can specify that your kids get it, that only if both of them want to sell it they can, or no one can, or whatever you want to do. It's pretty much built exactly for things like this. All in a family trust will set you back $3K or so.
