Welcome to my new blog....

So what do you think of my new blog? It was a lot of work but so fun to design. I was so excited yesterday was the day I got my disk with the pictures we had taken on Sunday. I am so excited to share our photo's with you all so I added some to my new blog design. I just love how they turned out!!! I even created my own blog button, so grab it if you want. What do you think?

Yesterday was my girls last day of school for the year. Crazy how this school year went by so fast!! What are we going to do this summer to keep ourselves busy?

So, I was laying in bed last night trying to go back to sleep after feeding Autumn and I had this wacky idea, make a schedule for the summer, lol. I am so not a schedule person but I think I might try it. I guess I need to start making a list of activity's we can do. I also had some other ideas but not sure how to go about them. My main idea was tickets and jars, hehehe. Okay, we have been doing the ticket system for a long time(and it has worked awesome) but never have let them or had a way for them to redeem them. They would get ticket for doing chores. So I was thinking last night (in bed while I was trying to sleep), I have been having so much trouble with them fighting, calling names, being crabby and just being at each other, oh and not to mention whining when I ask them to do something. I need to do something to change there attitudes, so lets start the tickets back up but with a different approach. So I had this thought (scary I know, hee hee) get jars, like canning jars or something like that. Use my cricut, some vinyl and put there names on each and every time they do something without whining, a good deed for each other, play nice, do there jobs, use kind words they can get a ticket. At the end of the week we will count the ticket if they have a certain amount of tickets, not sure on details yet. We will go do something special, toes painted, McDonald's, Starbucks, Ice Cream at the ice cream shop, a movie or pick out a special something. I will let you all know how it goes.....

I DO love the new look and the pictures are awesome!!
I am great at chore charts, etc. Horrible at following thru with their rewards! For awhile they were just earning computer time. Then we went for saved up computer time traded in for cash. Too complicated.
Good luck!!
