As a celebration of the end of school and a reward for the kids' accomplishments this year, we took them out on Friday for a special treat. When we got in the truck, I gave them a clue to figure out where we were going. The clue: Constellation Dollars. Can you guess what that is? It was so funny to hear their responses, "star money," "planet money," the planetarium, the museum. Abby finally guessed it. Of course, the right answer is: Starbucks! They were allowed to order any size drink of their choice. Let me just say, that is a big deal in this fam. We have NEVER given them the opportunity to order without restrictions.
The place was pretty full when we got there. We thought going at 1:30 in the afternoon would mean a pretty quiet place. Not so. The funny thing is, when we came in and sat down, the place cleared out pretty quick. I guess six children doesn't really lend itself to the Starbuck's experience for most people. I feel like Starbucks should give Rick and me some free stuff. We are fostering 6 future customers for them!
We spent our time congratulating each of them for their accomplishments of the year. Some even had goals that they set for themselves that they met:
Cody ordered a Grande Caramel Frap
Lauren ordered a Venti Mocha Cookie Crumble Frap
Abby ordered a Venti Caramel Frap
Sam ordered a Venti Strawberry and Cream Frap
Isaiah chose a Naked Orange Juice
Laila chose an Izzy Clementine Soda
