As a follow-up to my post about chores, THANK YOU for all the input - on Facebook & on the blog. Right now this is what we're going to try for McKinley & Ireland:
-EVERY DAY chores: *the basics (clean room, make bed, get ready, etc) - done in the morning,
*choice chore (to be no more than 15 minutes) for after they get home from school & finish homework.
-WEDNESDAY (their early day): McKinley will be expected to clean the bathroom & we'll have a bigger chore for Ireland, too.
-WEDNESDAY & SATURDAY: they will have the opportunity to do larger chores & earn more $.
ALLOWANCE: If they complete all their every day chores, choice chores, & big chore for the entire week, they will get a small allowance.
That's our plan & we'll see how it goes & I'll update the blog.
Here's some pics of our school girls. Growing up SO fast! Sigh...
