The kids and I had a fun morning. Ethan always wants to do something that requires my involvement. Most of the things he wants to do, I don’t want to do at all (Play-Doh- I hate it right now. It’s messy. It’s hard to clean up. The kids beg for it every day). So, last night as I was working on my last Bible study lesson, I decided I’d do more stuff with the kids today, but it would be stuff I planned. It worked really well. Maybe it was a God-inspired idea since it came to me while I was doing Bible study 🙂 ! So, we worked together on taking the wallpaper border off the remaining 1 1/2 walls that still had it in our bedroom. The kids thought it was great. Then I rearranged the Living Room and put a bunch of toys downstairs and the kids just played and had fun. We also danced and sang to a VBS CD that Ethan “won” at church a month ago. Ethan had the guitar, and Audrey had the mirophone. It was a rocking good time. So much more fun than saying, “no” all morning. Ahhhhh…. it was nice. I think that’s how it’s supposed to work most days. Mom and kids doing stuff together- having fun and accomplishing things at the same time!
By the way, good luck to Rachel who is on her way to Brownsville, TX for a missions trip with our youth group! I hope you have a fabulous time and that Ella and James miss you just enough to make you feel special, but not so much that everyone is miserable!
