FHE: 10 down, 42 to go

Right before FHE this evening I thought to myself, "this is what it is supposed to feel like, everyone working together to get the job done." (Yes, I'm singing it to the Bob the Builder tune) Seriously, Tasha and I had made the treat early that day; Bill had made dinner since I was gone and he got off early to vote; both the girls volunteered to help clean up the dishes; I was off preparing the lesson. And by "preparing" I mean that I knew what I was going to talk about so I went to my bedroom, knelt in prayer and thanked Heavenly Father for bringing us together this night. I was amazed and knew it was going to go well. I guess 10 is the lucky number!

Kyra really really had her heart set on playing Bingo tonight. I'm not really sure why, other than they played it at school today. She was adamant about it and she's not really like that. She said, "what if we skip the song or the lesson or something?" I didn't even have time to reply because Tasha piped in (tapping her pointer finger on her open palm for emphasis on each point), "No, first we have a prayer and then a song and then a lesson and treat and another prayer." I love it when they correct each other in a nice and respectful manner.

When we take turns reading scriptures I usually whisper the words into Tasha's ear and she repeats what I say. It's quite cute because some of the words come out really funny but nobody cares because they all have their own scriptures that they are following. Tonight she said, "can Kyra help me read them?" But of course sweet girl. We made them do it twice because I just had to capture it on film:

What a totally fun night we had! As we were eating our muffins I thanked them for being so great and asked if they wanted to play Bingo. We laughed and made animal noises as we ate the M&M Bingo markers and finished up our night. I LOVE MY FAMILY!

yay! That's how it should be. See, your family is getting the hang of it. That's great that the girls were so cooperative. I may have to steel the bingo game from you. That sounded fun. Did you make your own bingo cards or did you buy them somewhere?
