Today was live and loud.
We added CSM to our repertoire. It means 'crossing street mode', and in that mode, one walks quickly, directly, and with total focus. (In the default mode, the boys walk and dawdle, stop and go, completely oblivious to their surroundings. Until they find something cool). CSM seems to help.
The pom-pom challenge now includes not only 'getting ready and out the door in 3 minutes', but also 'staying at one's own desk during work times'. This is challenging for some. But they sure do have some ideas about what they want with their pom-pom prize! We'll see....it probably won't be a trip to Dairy Queen this time!
And what a beautiful day, beautiful kids, beautiful leaves....
