I think we are going tod the book it program a Pizza Hut. DH works at Pizza Hut and they love going, but we can't always afford it. We use Pom poms as rewards for chores and ugh, they pick a goal together, right now they are saving up their Pom poms for the SkylandersGiants game. Maybe I can do something similar jus for Lexi for reading.
