LilCrockett has been working really hard for the past few weeks. He has extra reading homework seven nights a week and that’s in addition to any assignments from his regular teacher. Not to mention any studying that needs to be done before tests. The hard work has paid off as we are seeing better grades on his assignments and tests. Thus, I rewarded him with a trip to the dollar store for a toy last night after our tutoring session. There weren’t a lot of high quality toys there, but he eventually settled on a knock-off army-themed Lego set. We put the pieces together once we got home. The quality of real Legos is so much better than this cheapo brand, but he was happy and I saved a lot of money.
