It started out with a short nap for me (what better way to start a day, eh?). I worked this morning and we are having friends over tonight, so I knew I was going to need a snooze if I was going to function as hostess with the most-ess. While I was out, my kids decided that today was Happy Best Mom in the Whole World Day, and made me cards and a Powerpoint presentation about all the ways I am The Best Mom. Sorry to all you other also-rans, apparently I have this award in the bag.
While Jacob finished up his Powerpoint, I was not allowed to leave my room so Austin came in to "keep me company" by reading scriptures with me. This is his new favorite way to spend time together - he randomly opens his scriptures to a page, tells me where to turn to, and then we read a few verses back and forth. There's no rhyme or reason to how he chooses where we read, and usually it's just 3-4 verses out of the middle of a chapter and then we move on, but I love it and have found some choice nuggets of verse to highlight and ponder that I probably wouldn't have otherwise stumbled on. I also love that this is an activity he chooses, and hearing this kid sound out scriptural vocabulary would blow your mind.
After I was presented with my award, we had a craft day with Jake working on sanding his Raingutter Regatta boat while Leah and Austin painted and I started Leah's flannel quiet book.
