Princess Play


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.

I hate 9 o'clock church because it's so early now that I have a baby... but I love it because you have the WHOLE afternoon to relax!

We have to be at church at 930 for sunday School, and then church starts at 1030. It does make for a long day. That's such a great idea about quiet time...I think I may steal it!!

We just started the 9:00 block again. It takes some getting used to, but I prefer it. Scott has to be at the church by 6:30 though, that is hard. We do get more time with him in the afternoon though.

Cute picture, and cute play. Your kids are so cute.

Girls are so creative. This little play reminds me of my nieces. They do stuff like that all the time. I love it when they include my boys because it get their creative juices flowing.
