Simeon and his new hammer

About a month and a half ago, I worked out a reward system with Simeon’s teacher to work on his behavior at school.  We broke the day up into six parts for which he can earn stickers.  If he gets at least 5 stickers at school he gets a sticker at home.  Fill up the sticker sheet at home and he gets something.

A week or so ago I started asking him what he wanted and he consistently said he wanted a toolbox.  This last weekend we wound up at the outlet mall and I picked out a tool bag, hammer, screwdriver, level and measuring tape.  He was quite excited.

He finally earned his toolbox yesterday.  Tomorrow I am going to stop somewhere and pick up supplies (or hopefully a kit) to build a birdhouse which we can hang up somewhere in the yard.

Took this pic when we took an evening walk tonite.  Love the image of Caitlyn running away as Simeon happily shows off his hammer, even if she didn’t have a clue what he was doing.
