Summer responsibilities!

I usually give my kids
a break the first week of summer break,
we spend a great deal of time at the pool,
and just relaxing! 

Then, I drop the bomb!

The new chore list!

Isn't it pretty!
(sorry for the blurriness)
Just makes you want to do chores doesn't it?

Everyone in our family has their assigned color -
they are welcome to do their chores anytime
during the week, 
or day if it's a specified daily chore,
as long as it gets done!

I have gotten feed back from the kids that
they like this chart.

They like the freedom to get the chore done whenever
they have the free time.
I like it because they will get it done -
and I don't have to nag.
If they don't get it done that day or
week -
notice there are blank cards -
Mom gets to add another chore!

Ohhh - what am I gonna do when the big kids
go back to school?

I like this idea!
May need to figure out how to do something similar.

What a great idea!! Justin is already planning the day when the boys will be able to help out around the house/yard!! =) I'll keep this in mind!

love this idea - I just noticed in the past few weeks how much our girls love to help me and this might be a great way to reinforce this!

we just moved to the Plano area a week ago so maybe once I get unpacked, I'll get to this idea. :)
