We are learning in school, Joseph has started Upwards Basketball, I've tried to keep things interesting but still it gets old being inside because of the cold and not even one snowfall.
The day of our LovingKindness Dinner, we started reading Max Lucado's book, Just Like Jesus. I first read this book in high school and I had been wanting to re-read it with the kids. It has been the perfect book for this time in our lives. Max's analogies are so appropriate for their minds and his writing illustrates in ways they understand.
At the dinner, Bethany and Joseph shared scriptures they had written and the three oldest kids all made notes for each other telling them how they felt about them. They were honest about their frustrations and irritations but they were all quick to encourage and say how much they loved each other. We all dressed up and Joseph and Jenna made name places. It was fun for everyone and a sweet time.
