A blog describing the everyday life of a homeschooling mama in central California just trying to serve God and her family.
I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. Philippians 4:13

The beginning of our summer break (June & July) I told #3 that if he read 1000 pgs. by the end of the summer he could get the Lego City Police Command Truck (I think that's what it's called) . I told #4 that if he read 700 pgs. he could get the Lego City Fire boat. Neither one of my younger 2 boys are "readers." Well, #4 read all 700 pgs. in about 4 wks. #3 on the other hand, well he was taking his time. We ended up moving the last 2 weeks of our summer so I gave #3 an extra 2 weeks.
Today #4's boat arrived via post office...
I must say, that my little bit of bribery seems to have worked, they both seem much more interested in reading actual chapter books, especially #4. Whatever it takes. :-D
