40 Minutes to Go...

... and there's nothing to do.

The girls and I got ready for church early this morning, rather than waiting until the last minute. Hence, I have nothing to do.

Oops. I lied. I should still pack a few snacks for the girls, but seriously, it's weird being all ready rather than running around in a panic at the last minute.

It's kind-of nice. Maybe I'll try this again next week.

I love the feeling of being on time and unrushed, then get involved in something and am late anyway. Sigh.

Church - why is it that any other day we can get the kids ready and out the door without a fuss, but on SUNDAY mornings, all heck breaks loose! I know why - it's just so frustrating!

Just caught up on your blog - you've had an adventurous (sp?) few weeks! I love This is The Place park! Maybe we'll take our kids one of these weekends. . .so much to do and so much to learn!

Lagoon? You're a brave soul! Kenton keeps begging to go. We'll see!

The wrong number post made me laugh so hard! What a dork on the other end of that call, huh?! I'm fairly certain that 20 questions is also not the way to go when you get a wrong number.

I LOVE that part about not asking the kids to do something you want them to do. I use that technique all the time at school, and during primary, but tend to forget at home. I had just finished reading that part of the post before I informed the kids that they were going to clean the toys from the living room in the basement.

Instead of saying, "Will you please clean up your mess?" which would have been met with whines, grumps, pouts, tears, etc. . . I said, "Okay, I'm going to go make your breakfast while you clean up your toys - ready, set, go!" And GUESS WHAT - it worked!!!! Hooray! Thanks for the reminder! :O)

Now, I'll end this eternal comment - I've enjoying catching up! Try to stay cool during this ultra hot week!
