We have made WONDERFUL changes to family life this year!!!
Inspired by THIS...we have decided to start this new money/chore system!
We have simplified the checklists we had been doing...
and now their are four boxes a day!
They are able to earn $1-for every year they are old-every week.
If they miss one check they only get half...
and if they miss more than one they get nothing.
They can make up one check by memorizing a poem.
(That reminds me of THIS which I was absolutely love.)
The girls will be responsible for purchasing personal wants...and 1/2 of their clothes
(for each item they choose to purchase they will have to pay for half of each item)
These changes have been good for all of us...
(THE GIRLS HAVE BEEN MAKING THEIR BEDS WITHOUT BEING REMINDED!!!!)
BUT the VERY best part of it---
are family fun Saturdays.
We work hard all week and we NOW play together on Saturdays!
This was the first Saturday play day....
We decided to go to the Leonardo Museum!
We all ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT!
We did visit the temporary exhibit---DaVinci...
but their very favorite part was the art area just as you enter the museum.
There was a man presenting that hand makes violins.
It was fascinating to learn from him and the girls were able to bend wood just like is done in violin making. We can't wait to go back!!!
