Make Mine Cookies and Cream
We had a goal this school year of having everyone memorize all the books of the Bible. (We tried last year but went brain stupid somewhere around Joel and Amos.) So I decided to up- the- ante with a promise of Chick- Fil -A milkshakes when everyone had all the books down perfectly.
Between the lust for the highly desired and rarely purchased milkshakes and the shame of having Samuel, the baby of the family, memorizing the books effortlessly and reciting them just a hair slower than the speed of light, the competition became fierce.
And today the last two boys were able to nail the list perfectly and off we headed to Chick-Fil-A where they enjoyed the rewards of their work.
And yes, I memorized the books along with the kids but refrained from ordering a milkshake because I like the size jeans I'm wearing.
