While we nibbled on bread/butter, we discussed how Jesus is the Bread of Life and how we should remember him, especially at this time of year. We also talked about each person's talents and the word inscribed on their board and how they could follow Christ by developing and strengthening that attribute. I hope it went over well and that it sticks to their young minds. I've been planning it for weeks. Mr. C was feverish and eventually had to leave to pass out on the couch, so it wasn't ideal per se, but it rarely ever is. It's the moments that matter. So hopefully at least some smidgen of a wonderful teaching moment planted itself in my children's minds.
Also don't let these pictures fool you. The house was absolutely and horrifically trashed from top to bottom. It's amazing just how nasty things can get when no one feels good and no one (namely me) is keeping up on all the clutter-removal duties and counter washing responsibilities. Ugh. I'm trying desperately to catch up.
