For those who don't go to Centennial a track is a piece of paper the kids earn for good behavior or quick thinking at school. They are given out by any faculty member of the school. This year Shane and I decided that for every 10 the kids earned they could earn a special reward. They each got to make a list of 5 rewards to choose from. The include things like swimming, getting a date with mom and dad, getting happy meals, or late overs. Surprisingly Brandon was the first to earn 10. He chose $5 in Wizard 101 (a internet game he's addicted to) money. Lindsay earned her 10 a few days later. Logan is 1 away ( I WILL find something to give him one today!) from earning his first 10.

So last night Lindsay chose to make a fancy desert and play restaurant "A la Lindsay" is what she called it. She wanted to light candles and everything. She chose Molten Lava Cake as her desert. It was the perfect reward for her. She loves cooking so much and she really did most of the cooking by herself. Except for cracking eggs. Oh, Lindsay DOES NOT like cracking eggs. I tried teaching her to do it "cleanly" but she just can't quite grasp it yet. She hates getting it on her hands. But she did a WONDERFUL job! I don't think she could have been prouder of herself!

Everyone absolutely loved them. Brandon started licking his plate which inspired Sophie and Logan to do so as well. This upset Lindsay a little bit. She yelled, "Is this the kind of behavior you would have at a fancy restaurant??" She got her brothers to stop, but not Sophie. It was really fun.

I'm really proud of how hard the kids have been working at school to earn these tracks. I hope we get to have more fun 10 track nights!

Oh my goodness, I could just eat up Lindsay AND her dessert! What a ham! She is so fabulous with her haircut, and I love her cooking abilities. Molten Lava Cake - can't beat that! And her comment about manners in a fancy restaurant? What a ham! Nice job on the rewards all the way around. Loved this post.
