fifteen points!



ari started a chart system a while back where he can earn points for positive behavior and trade them in for things desirable to a 5-year-old boy. the highest prize is valued at 15 points and is a trip to chuck e. cheese. to accumulate this number of points other prizes must be lived without (time on the computer or ps2) which is a great sacrifice. the "magic" number was achieved sunday and we piled in the corolla, drove the 25 minutes to the nearest chuck e. cheese to find the place surrounded with people just waiting to get INTO the building. being the great parents we are we waited and then waded through the masses so that ari could cash in his hard-earned points. a wonderful time was had by all. note-to-self: don't go to chuck e. cheese's on a sunday at 5 p.m. with a child who will dissolve into fits of tears if you can't stay.

That sounds like a cool rewards system. I hate Chuck E Cheese, though. Have you guys been to Safari Sam's in Sherwood?

i still remember going to chuck e cheeses when it was called showbiz pizza with the krommendyk girls. dang, that's the kind of memory i have. its cool though, because its a good memory. one of my favourite bits of my childhood was the fact that the krommendyk boys and girls hung out a lot.

jer-
showbiz pizza was the BEST! i loved growing up with you and your brothers and will always thank God for three "brothers from a different mother"-a mother who was like "my second mother". you're right...those were good times.
