Well, by Wednesday we just weren't making very much progress. So, I decided to bribe them. (Aren't I awful!) Yesterday morning, I told the boys that if they caught up *by tonight* they would earn a surprize. (I let them see the surprise.) By dinner time, I told them that they could continue working through the weekend, and I would still let them earn their prize... But they didn't want to stop. They (or rather we) stuck with it all day, and late last night, at 9:45, they had earned their reward!
Combined I think they completed over 50 pages of school work! It's amazing what a little bit of motivation can accomplish!
Now, if we could just stay caught up! ;)
