7:00am PLEASE wake up everyone! Church starts in 1 hour!
7:30am GET OUT OF BED NOW!!! (spirit is now gone as mom yelled it away!)
8:00am always there on time
11:00am church ends
the rest of the day: completely destroying the house we worked so hard to clean the day before
begging for wii time
driving each other crazy
(with a little faith in God work interspersed throughout the day and possibly a trip to Grandma's to break up the monotony.)
So another goal I have this year is to make Sunday a little more special! Yes, of course it's easier when church is at 10 or 11. But if you can't change things, you may as well change your attitude. :)
One of the activities I am planning for every Sunday is journal writing. My kids (Brandon especially!) don't love the thought of this. But they said they are willing to try. I am envisioning our family sitting together around the table writing with loving looks on our faces. lol!
On Monday we got all of our journals decorated. I bought these at Target for 97 cents a pop. I'm sure they have them everywhere.
Then, following Jen's idea we decorated and talked about the importance of sharing our stories.
