Summer Savings...

This is what happens if you don't take care of your teeth...
Mom sent piggy banks and crazy teeth to humor the kids.  It served as a great teachable moment (not to mention instigate many laughs).  Monday we started a weekly chore chart where the kids can earn money each week by doing 5 basic things:
* Brush Your Teeth
* Make Your Bed
* Take Your Dishes to the Sink
* Put Your Clothes Away
* Do Your School Work
These are basic chores to last us until school begins.  Each day we are spending a little time doing some school work.... i.e. basics like learning to write names, phone number, letters, numbers, Leap Frog books, and math.  They are excited about gaining stickers and earning money at the end of each week.  Hope this never wears off - ha ha....
Meanwhile, the girls are loving gymnastics summer camp!  I'm loving the opportunity to do a couple things around the house and having some one on one with James.
