back cacks.

we’ve had a bit of issues with obedience lately.
so, when i was at a complete loss as to what to do,
B prayed and the Holy Spirit revealed to him the new plan that we are following.
and you know what?
it’s been working
of course.
God is so good, isn’t He?

one element of our new plan is that each week,
the kids make a new sticker chart
(preferably during one of L’s therapy sessions –
so that they are occupied for at least five minutes of the session).

we are now making a weekly trek to the party store nearby.

here they are with their “back cacks” as K calls them,
all filled up and ready for our two-and-a-half minute car ride.
remember, they are my children so they come prepared.

and each big kid gets to pick out a little treat.
that is,
if and only if
their sticker chart is filled up.
(our CBS teacher always reminds us that motivation
is not only good for our little ones but for us as well).

the first week, D picked out this shiny sheriff badge.
see, when there is obedience, everybody wins.
even woody.

the second week, D and K both wanted more stickers for their charts.
so they were rewarded with stickers to be rewarded with.
sounds like a good plan to me.
when we are obedient, blessings abound.

…and each will be rewarded according to his own labor.
