We get out of church early. I love Sunday afternoons. Well, at least most of the time, especially when my kids help out so much.
Lately Elle’s been our Sunday chef. She can make one heck of a delicious dinner…seriously.…and even sometimes trains her little sister.I don’t have a picture, but Grace is a gem in the setting-the-table area. She gets out the china and the “princess” goblets and sets the dining room table up all nice. She employs Claire too.
Max is the master in the baking area. We start out each Sunday with each kid deserving three cookies after church. If they’re really reverent they get to keep all three. If they’re not, they gradually delete their stash. I won’t say this makes them perfect, but it sure helps. So, needless to say, making cookies on Sunday afternoons is a must.
Lucy fits in a little reading to her babies when she’s not screaming for more milk in her sippy cup.
And we may fit in a family bike ride.
And a late afternoon photoshoot.As you can see, Max was pleased as punch about this one. He LOVES taking pictures. Can you tell?Pretty darn happy to be done…even though it took a total of eight minutes from leaving our driveway to pulling back in. Not such a great sport.
Elle’s friend who’s been staying with us this weekend was much more accommodating. Thanks Emma!
