The kids walked home after church today and got home before Dean and I did. By then, Mabel, Rose, and Henry had created this setup:
So far while I’ve been uploading these photos, Bishop Duck has made announcements and given a short talk about how choosing the right can help us feel the Spirit, more testimonies have been shared, and now they’ve divided into Priesthood, Relief Society, and Primary groups. In Primary they’re greeting visitors with a welcome song.
Today our Relief Society lesson (in real church) was based on a General Conference talk, “Reverence and Respect,” and we discussed how kids need opportunities to practice appropriate church behavior. So it was fun to come home and find my kids having their own improvised church practice.
(I did have to take Rose out of Sacrament Meeting for a few minutes’ time-out today, and while I was holding her on my lap she kicked me with her heels, so I have a new bruise on my shin as a reward for my efforts to teach reverence at Real Church.)
