A well deserved break...

I am a pretty tough mom. 
And no... I don't mean strong.
I mean I expect my kids to not only know how to act but to act that way also, I expect them to work hard to achieve their goals and I expect them to be respectful and caring to others at all times.  That's just to name a few.  To sum it up... I expect my kids to be the best they can be in everything they do.
Now, that all sounds fine and dandy... unless you're my kids.  lol.  After an 8 hr day at school... we take a quick snack break and out comes the homework.  We WILL complete our homework... and we will do it right... or we will do it again.  Even if that means we are still sitting at the kitchen table four hours later.  I know... it sounds harsh... but that's what we do.
So, needless to say... C has been working pretty hard at homework this whole month and we were all ecstatic when he reached his AR goal 2 WEEKS EARLY!! (We weren't even sure he would make it at all when we first started).  Don't get me wrong... we still did homework, but instead of a quick snack break after school... we took a cookie break.  He had a friend come over and they were both ecstatic. 

They each had their own pile of cookie dough, their own cookie sheet and their own spoon... for tasting. :)
I'll let the pictures tell the rest of the story. :)

Way to go C ... you definitely earned it! We should do this more often!!
