We go to church at 9:00 now. Which is good and bad. I think the kids behave better durning church when we go earlier. But, the day seems so long. We started making the kids stay in their rooms for at least an hour after lunch for quiet time. We told them that they had to read a story, or build something, or make up a play and then show us when their time was up. The girls made up a play. It was so cute. It was a princess play. M was the narrator, and J did all the little actions. The play was about a princess and all the things she had. M would read, "This is the princess' jewlery box, but it also has chapstick and a hair thing in it." While she was reading J would be putting on the chapstick, putting the hair thing in, and putting jewlery on. They did this with each of the things they had brought out. It was really cute to see their little imaginations at work.
