FCAT grades are in

The Cisco Kid is one of those children that think he knows everything. If he is shown something once, he thinks there is nothing more he could learn. I constantly tell him that if he thinks he knows everything he will stop learning. This mentality of his showed up at the beginning of the school year and the teacher picked up on it right away. She knew this was going to be a problem with his work. He was starting to get in the habit of rushing through his work and making mistakes. We all knew he was totally capable of achieving high grades. With that said, I derived this plan and totally bribed him into doing what was best for him. I told him if he gets threes on his FCAT test he will have to go to summer school. If he received fours on his FCAT test he could chose three of anything he wants as a gift. If he received fives on his FCAT test he could have a shopping spree at Toys "R" us. When the Chief heard about the shopping spree his jaw dropped and said, if he get fives there will be no stopping him. We will be in trouble. I guess we are lucky he did not get fives. He did get fours and this little boy is reaping in rewards. 

We spent about an hour in Toys "R" us. He picked out a Lego Clock Radio and an electric Razor scooter. His third gift was something he has been wanting for months and I refused to get for him, Converse high top sneakers.
They got back from riding around the neighborhood and the Chief was out of breath. The Razor goes 15 MPH and the Chief had a hard time keeping up on his bike. That is the kind of exercise the doctor ordered for the Chief. I guess it is my turn.
