chores and rewards

I started Bryce on some chores a while back with just a plain chart to put stickers after he did things.  We kind of all fell off the wagon so I decided to make a real chart for this summer.  We started last week once we were home from vacation.  We had a weird schedule last week so we were kind of hit or miss, but this week we're on fire! 
We really didn't impose any rewards with the completion of the chart other than the fact that Bryce could get time on the Wii or play Angry Birds Go on my phone if he did "learning time" with me.  However, we were at Kohl's yesterday and they had a Ninja Turtle sprinkler that Bryce has wanted but I've been waiting for it to go on sale.  Well he was in luck!  The sprinkler was 50% off and I had a $5 coupon for my birthday this month so we paid $1.83 for the sprinkler.  We went ahead and called that a chore chart reward!

We tested it out yesterday afternoon after Emmy's nap.  She wasn't a huge fan, but Bryce loved it!

Summer sweeties!

Good job Bryce on keeping up with your chores! Clearly you earned your new water sprinkler!

(I love the picture of Emmy with her hands over her face near the sprinkler! Too funny!)
