As I mentioned in my Daybook on Monday, one of my goals for this week was to “Catch Up” on a
ton little bit of school work. We have been so busy the past few weeks that my boys fell a bit behind in some of their workbooks.
Well, by Wednesday we just weren’t making very much progress. So, I decided to bribe them. (Aren’t I awful!) Yesterday morning, I told the boys that if they caught up *by tonight* they would earn a surprize. (I let them see the surprise.) By dinner time, I told them that they could continue working through the weekend, and I would still let them earn their prize… But they didn’t want to stop. They (or rather we) stuck with it all day, and late last night, at 9:45, they had earned their reward!
Combined I think they completed over 50 pages of school work! It’s amazing what a little bit of motivation can accomplish!
Now, if we could just stay caught up! 😉
