We do something with the kids each summer called KidStat. It’s a number of summer events that they do with an opportunity to make money at the end of the three months. We have the following events.
- Monkey Bars
- Pull Ups
- Push Ups
- Sit Ups
- Jumping Jacks
- Squat Jacks
- Loco Motive
Each child is strong in one and weak in another (except Colt who will probably be strong in all of them once he starts doing them). Today’s high achievers are Lorelai who did 150 straight jumping jacks (50 more from last week = $17 earned for event) Taya J who did 67 bars on the monkey bars (41 more from last week = $41 earned for event) and Luke who did (gasp) 67 Loco Motives (51 more from last week = $25 earned for event) So here is big daddy (yours truly) thinking, shoot let me get in on this action and since the kids all struggle with pull ups I thought I would show them how it’s done.
My neck, upper and lower back are all cursing at me right now.
Good thing we have a new mattress. I’m out! Troy
