What motivates you? The last game Jacob played I think he only kicked the ball once or twice, he ran around alot, but was never near the goal. Today I decided it was time to try a motivational technique on Jake. To motivate a 5 year old, you need to think like a 5 year old, I told Jacob I would buy him a toy if he made a goal. Well, he scored twice and just missed two other goals. So, I owe him two toys of his choosing. What motivates you? What does it take for you to give your very best? What does it take to get you fired up? These are questions that I am asking myself after watching his performance improve tremendously by having a little goal. Plus, I told him, he is the only person in his family to ever score 2 goals in one game. Setting a goal, achieving it, and feeling like a winner, is really cool at 5 or 95 years old for that matter.
It's my pleasure to share a few moments in the life of our family with you. We know we are in a truly blessed season with all five kids still at home. This blog also encourages me to take few more photos as I attempt to get a handful of quality shots to treasure for a lifetime. All photos can be enlarged with one click and feel free to comment. I use this blog because Facebook reduces the quality of the photos and I like keeping all the pics in one place.
