books, fires and day 9
*Pulled out the Christmas books last week. We gathered them from thrift stores and rummage sales. They were all so excited. Gabe loves the music ones.
*lots of warm fires
*We made up some love notes and stuck them on the cars in random parking lots. Jeremiah took 2 of them to school and put them in random places in the school. Love their participation. I want this advent to always be something our kids participate in because I do think it helps cultivate a spirit of thankfulness and kindness during a season which can easily focus on our own personal wants. I never want our kids to shy away from kindness. Every morning as we drive to school I pray out loud over their day and always ask God to show them opportunities for kindness.
