Setting Up For Summer

Two things:

When the kids run out of screen time (45 mins) and they’re looking for something to do, they can look no further than the “Expiring Toys” basket. Featuring new old toys weekly! Anything that doesn’t get used that week is at risk of being donated or sold.

Also, I’m trying out a punch card system for things I want to encourage: daily reading, math facts practice, playing outside for hours, extra noticeable kindness, and the like. In exchange for: new books, money for Minecraft building (and more time to do it), DQ blizzards, later bedtimes, etc. I have a clean list neatly hung on the fridge but no one has even noticed! Anyway, it will be fun to see how this all goes.

Two more days.
