Jackson made his first sign today--those miscellaneous letters read something like "No girls only boys can come in but Rissy can come in but not Bella." Note the sad girl. Don't pity Isabella too much, she had a sign of her own and claimed only "cute boys" could come in, referring to Emmett and Owen (yeah, I was concerned there for a minute too). Apparently Jackson is no longer cute.
And a little update on the summer reading--I found Josh pondering the girls' reading records--Marissa around 700 pages so far Isabella around 300--and he looked at me with fear in his eyes and asked "What is the plan here?" I told him how Marissa gets $1 for every 100 pages, Isabella $1 for every 50. And suddenly we each were hit with the revelation they just might make us go broke. I should have made it lower, like $0.25 or something. We may have to set a lid . . . Maybe once they hit $20 there will be different awards like read 1000 more pages and go to Sta.r Ci.ty Sh.ores or something like that. But I had myself a good giggle as Josh muttered something under his breath about "weirdos." ;o) I guess having an incentive is good motivation!
