One project down--I finally organized the rolltop into some functional order. Now it holds office supplies, unpaid bills, stationery and the like. We are tucking the library bag in its kneehole and standing new library books on its work surface. It adds a little more interest at Andrew's eye level. He can earn 1 point for every book he reads aloud to Elise.
(He also earns a point each time he completes chores on the list. 5 points earns 20 minutes of computer time, a video, or an be saved toward a new toy in the family general store. We stole this concept from my arch-nemesis, Chuck E. Cheese.)
