After a long hiatus, I finally got around to doing a Family Home Evening post! Actually, we delayed FHE for a night, having it on Tuesday instead of the usual Monday because...well, Monday evening, I was crying and emotional so the Man put the kids to bed instead of having a lesson. Tonight? Much better! Da Boo brought home a temple-themed activity from church on Sunday so I used that and the recent Friend as my inspiration.
And if you don't want to read about it, there are a couple new cakes posted.
Opening Song: Twinkle Little Star. Surprise, surprise.
Opening Prayer: The Man.
Lesson: We talked for a moment about temples and what da Boo learned in Sunday School. I tell ya, she gets more than you think she does, especially because she is not the best at sitting still and paying attention.
Using the Friend, the kids piled on top of me (of course) and we read Just Like Mommy. I thought it would be fun because it uses simple pictures in place of common words. Even the Boy was able to get these, although there was an almost heated debate as to whether or not the temple was another castle. I showed him the drawbridge on the castle and then pointed out that there was no drawbridge on the temple. So for future reference...if you see a structure and don't know if it's a castle or a temple, look for a drawbridge.
Closing Song: I Love to See the Temple.
Closing Prayer: Me.
Activity #1: It's been nice in the evenings, so the Man took the kids to the park. I was invited but really, the draw of a few minutes of peace and quiet (and the possibility of maybe using the bathroom by myself) was too much of a draw. Still, I eventually grabbed the camera and joined them.
Treats: Earlier in the day, to celebrate the success of a topic I promised not to mention, we baked chocolate chip cookies. Mmmmm...nothing like warm cookies and milk!
Activity #2: For Father's Day, the Man got Rock Band. The kids have been dying to play it more so we let them have at it tonight. I love how da Boo got so into it, that her tongue is sticking out as she concentrates. (And after the kids went to bed, we played a little more...hehehehehe...)
