Room Check

It's Thursday and it's 7:00.  Is your room clean?

This has become our weekly routine.  It's how the kids get their allowance.  One of the three has not always been very motivated to get her allowance.  I'm sure I've mentioned this before.  She surprised us all two Thursdays ago with a clean room.  (I have to admit that I threatened to withhold trick or treating if her room wasn't clean.  I know, I'm so mean.)  For some reason Mickey didn't get around to paying the kids' allowance last week.  And now we have two weeks worth of chores and room checks on the board.
Room Check
It's quite amazing to see all three kids with two room checks.  I don't know if this has ever happened before.

If you look you'll see the chores are a little on the sparse side.  School work and sports practices are taking too much time for them to do many chores.  This means I have more to do but in all honesty it's not getting done very well.

Other news from today...we went to a funeral for a family friend,Keith Rigby this morning.  Then we came home and Meg and I mowed, or should I say mulched the leaves, while Mickey and Kade took the trampoline down for the cold season ahead.  Then Mickey and Meg headed to Elkhart for two basketball games.  Mickey got a promotion tonight.  He was head coach instead of assistant.  The real head coach got tied up with another game.  Busy, busy day.
