So before the school year even began, Erik decided to offer a
Spelling Test Challenge to Jaxon for the whole school year.
Little did we know at the time the challenge that mom and dad were up for as well
....so here was the deal:
Jaxon could not miss (1) word on his spelling tests the whole year...not one...and he would receive a $100.00 amount to spend on what he wishes...
(well you know the drill it is actually $10.00 for God, $10.00 for savings and $80.00 to spend on what he wishes but who is counting except him)?
Three weeks in to the spelling tests and we are dealing with words like obedience, thoroughly, imitation, maneuvers, manners, relatives....these are some really tough words for 2nd grade don't you think? I guess what do I know..I am still new to this!
We are at 100% right now thanks to dad practicing at night and mom practicing on the car rides to school in the morning! We had 1 hiccup where Jaxon used a capital letter instead of lowercase however the word was spelled right so dads agreement still stands(and Jaxon has more of me in him than I care to admit with his arguing tactics)!
