Grabbing Up Time with Kids
This year, the oldest is starting middle school, which means there is an hour between the time his school starts and I take the younger. Then, I have the two younger for 45 minutes in the afternoon. I’m looking for creative ways to build in special times with them in that time, rather than wishing it away (which is hard…we sat in the van 45 minutes yesterday with the air on high, still hot).
We may use the bus at some point, esp. in the morning, but this morning, I had a great time with my oldest. We drove to the trail and walked, and jogged, and raced, and he acted silly and I took pictures. It was a vacation within a day. And…he told me about things that happened yesterday he didn’t mention today. And, I know to pray for him in new ways. And ask about different things. I am so thankful for this morning.
Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.
