New Year Day

Today was a fun day. Mike and I sat the kids down and explained our new chore system and any over our expectations of them. It seemed to go well. We told them that they each have a dish night and a Saturday chore. To expedite some of the organizing and cleaning up that needed to get done outside of those two things Mike pulled out his jar of quarters and put a dollar amount on specific things he wanted done. So cleaning the bathroom was a dollar and vacuuming was .50. The kids loved it! Gavin even cleaned his room better than any of the big kids have ever done! They really seem to appreciate making money. Our next lesson with them will be saving and tithing what they get. I'm really proud of how hard they worked today.
