Tonight when we got home we worked on the house.  The boys were working on their room while I made dinner.

They came out with a list of things they were going to work on in terms of being obedient.  They also had a schedule of things they were going to do each day.  They are going to start the process tomorrow.

They even outlined the punishment for various items of disobedience.  They decided they would write sentences for disobedience, because they both hate that.  They also said they don't really respond to things being taken away since they have lived their entire lives losing things.  I thought that was pretty insightful for them to realize it...also quite true.

Of course...they want to start tomorrow.  That means tonight they have decided to stay up late (a bedtime is included in the new plan) and not really listen to me.

We'll see how tomorrow goes.  I am cautiously optimistic!

Praises for continued thought about this morning's message at church.
