Last night we did FHE with another family, which usually happens about once or twice a month in our family. I would love to have it every Monday night, but I always find excuses not to. The biggest one for me is what lesson should I teach and how can I make it age appropriate for my kids? That always puzzles me. Then it leads to last minute preparation and a very thoughtless lesson. Now I have to say that there is no more room for excuses!! A (somewhat) new-found-love of mine, that makes FHE totally brainless and easy to do, is this wonderful FHE blog that has everything outlined to the T! My friend Natalie started it a while ago, and let me tell you...it takes alot of the work out of it, but makes you feel like FHE is still doable!
I hope you check out this FHE Blog and use it too...it has great ideas, lots of different topics with activities and refreshments to match...thanks Natalie, and let me know when you want a contribution too, I have been brainstorming some ideas!
Bryanna Funny of the Day:
Last night, Mark was watching the Home Run Derby.
Bryanna says to him, "Daddy, I don't want to watch Baseball."
PAUSE.....Mark and I both look at her waiting for her to manipulate us into turning on one of her favorite Barbie movies...She is thinking of what to say...
She then says, "I want to watch GOLF!" We cracked up off and on for the rest of the night!
