Despite the crazy week, I am so excited about the house progress! The upstairs is all framed and they are working on the roof. The picture above is me with Ellie in her room. It feels so real now that I can walk through the whole house and picture what day to day life will be like living there. I’ll share more pics next week when I find the energy and time to sort through them. :)
On another note – I have to share the charts my girls made that crack me up! Ellie loves donuts so every once in a while during homework when we are struggling with her not wanting to stay focused I make a little deal with her. (Homework is a necessary evil to my El – there are always too many things she would rather be doing!) We can go buy a donut at the grocery store if she will buckle down and get her homework done WITH a positive attitude. Yes. I
often occasionally bribe my children. Desperate times call for desperate measures. I was upstairs with Kole last week and told the girls to go get started on their homework and I’d be down to help soon. When I walked downstairs I was immediately greeted by colorful paper taped to the wall.
First up is Ellie’s chart. She went into great detail explaining it to me. She added her name taped to the side so that I could move it up and down depending on how she is doing with her homework.
HA! I had a hard time keeping a straight face. Then I saw Addison’s chart and absolutely could not keep a straight face. Let me translate…
I hope it’s a “gud” one.
