A gorgeous day outside. Blue skies,
a wonderful breeze and a vanilla bean latte!
If you were joining me for my afternoon cup of
caffeine I would tell you that summertime and warm temps
make my heart happy. It also makes my life
a bit busy and with less than 2 months until we
move maybe a little stressed.
We are looking forward to moving. I have one suitcase almost packed that
will be making the trip a few weeks early with a friend who is going to be
flying to CR next week. For those of you who love a challenge, I have one for you;
try moving a family of five out of the country for a year and only taking what will fit in
your luggage and carry-ons. I'm realizing just how much stuff I have
and how unnecessary some of it is.
With summer in full swing
I didn't need another full time job
making sure the kids did their jobs around
So it was time for a family meeting and
we came up with a system that will hopefully work for us.
Week one was a success but we are into week 2 and it may
need a little tweaking.
The kids each have a jar and the goal is to fill
the jar with glass pebbles so they can earn a reward.
They get pebbles for each chore they complete.
We made a list of chores and gave each a "pebble" value.
They choose what chore and when their jars are full
they have options.
$10.00 ~ a date with mom or dad(they still think its cool)~ or having a friend for a sleepover.
Cleaning out the dishwasher - 2 pebbles
Cleaning out the van - 5 pebbles
Happy Tuesday you all, I'm
off to another ball game
and join me for virtual coffee here.
