Last night Jenny and I had some special time together while Keith and the “big kids” were at Trail Life and American Heritage Girls.
I promised her a fun night, though!
Before everyone headed out the door, we sat together and read books on a new app I recently discovered.
Then we talked about how we were going to spend our special evening.
She wanted to watch the Goodnight Show on Sprout and I promised her a special dessert to enjoy while we watched.
She also wanted me to color in her new Frozen coloring book with her.
The smile on her face in these two pictures sums up our night together pretty well.
With a busy family of four children, it’s not always easy to make one on one time, but it’s so important.
Another aspect of our family life that is important to us is reading time. Jenny is developing a love for reading as she sees her brother and sister reading.
She loves for me to read her stories before bed.
And she really enjoyed listening to the stories being read on this new app.
It’s funny how technology has made it’s way into every part of our lives. It has to be carefully monitored, but it can be beneficial if it’s handled properly.
I don’t think I ever imagined one of my children “reading” a book on my phone, but then again, I never imagined that I’d ever be carrying around a computer in my pocket.
Do you see the Legos sitting in Jenny’s lap as we’re reading?
Our family loves Legos!
We have a huge basket of Lego Duplo blocks in the corner of the living room and my children are constantly building with them.
That’s what Jenny was doing just before we sat down to read together.
You’re likely to see lots of Lego building snapshots through this series of posts!
Thanks for joining me for Day 1 of Pictures and Words where I’ll be sharing our family’s everyday stories through pictures and words. I hope you’ll be back to join me again!
