It'll Come.

There are a few things that I have tried to instill in my kids this year that just don't seem to come. Like cleaning. We've done chores and sticker charts and tried everything else I know of but it has not seemed to do any good. Well, Ellie is a natural. My kids, on the other hand, are just like me.

Today was a breakthrough. Okay, well, we have ants. We get them every year and I have not called the bug people yet becuase I know they can come and spray all they want, but in this weather the ants just come. It could be worse.

On 2 different occasions 2 different kids decided to clean the bathroom in order to minimize ants on the counter. WITHOUT ME ASKING!!!! They didn't want praise or a prize. They just wanted a clean bathroom. So, I am encouraged to keep at it. It'll come.

All of a sudden Savannah and Ellie just got on their bikes without training wheels and rode...like they've been doing it for years. Now Summer is inspired, too.

We've worked HARD at obeying right away. Now, they don't do it 100% of the time yet, but all I have to say is "you are not choosing to obey right away" and they drop what they are doing, listen, and obey.
Yea! Today was encouraging. It'll come.

PS. Blogger changed! Where's the spell check?
