Lest the free form and lack of structure at Bear Lake corrupt the kids, it’s been an Eyre tradition for years to have summer “deals.” We did them growing up….every single summer. It’s how we raised our money for school clothes. So, this year, I figured my kids were old enough to have their own summer “deals.” They were really into it.
Charlie petered out after the first little bit….but Hazel went strong the whole time. Whenever she got a little board I told her to go and work on her goals. She’d look at her chart and get going. I loved watching that determination.
She was especially determined by the “be a rock star” goal. Practiced daily, almost hourly. She now knows quite a few rock songs….can sing them word for word, and even has actions. A very important skill, if you ask me.
