So, how was everyones Mothers Day? My kids tried real hard to make it special for me. They had homemade cards, and projects from school, and they kept asking what they could do to help. Of course, they were still fighting with each other, and making messes, and being kids. Too bad we can't get what we really want for Mother's Day. Perfect kids for one day. Or at least ones who don't fight with each other. hehehe. But I know they were trying :)
Church was crazy. We had a family move out of the ward last week, so we took over their row. We can see Captain America better from there, and I just like the spot better.
Only Hilary and I were there for Primary. Andrea's son, Luke, was having a hard time breathing (asthma-like symptoms), and took him to the ER after sacrament. Karin was out of town in Arizona. Laurie went to Demming, NM where her family lives for Mother's Day. So that just left Hilary and I.
She'd planned on having another member of the Presidency help her with the Mother's Day craft while she taught sharing time for the Junior Primary. Well, since it was just her and I, she did an abreviated Sharing Time, and then I had 45 minutes for singing time. Let me tell you, I may not have known the song by heart when we started Singing time, but by the time we got done, BAM! I knew all the words. hehehe.
We played a game where 2 kids would come up at a time, and roll dice. One rolls red and one rolls back. Red tells us what we are doing during the song.
1-clapping the rhythm
2 - marching the rhythm
3 - hopping the rhythm
4 - standing
6 - spinning
The white would say WHO does the action.
1 - Black/Brown Hair
2 - Wearing red/pink
3 - wearing white
4 - wearing pants
5 - wearing skirt/dress
6 - blue/green eyes
Everyone had to sing, but only the people mentioned with the white dice would get to do the action. They seemed to like it. I was doing a solo most of the time, but they were learning it. We must have sang it 25 times. My voice was SO tired, not to mention my body, after hopping and spinning and junk. Dang, who thought up that game, anyway? hehehe.
Senior primary was much easier, since they could do the craft on their own. We only had 15 minutes worth of singing time. Much easier - hehehe.
I came home, got the kids lunch, and slept for 2 hours. Yeah, that nap felt good. The rest of the day was pretty lazy. We watched some Doctor Who (this season is super good!), cooked some soup for the kids for dinner, and just hung out for the rest of the day.
Here it is, 10:32pm, and I'm gonna watch an episode of Fringe, and go to bed. If I got to bed by midnight, I'll get 7 hours. That's an improvement from the 5 I've been getting the past few nights. hehehe.
OK, so dandelions aren't really pretty. Well, they are to a 2-8 year old. Especially boys. hehehe. They LOVE to pick them for us. I don't know how many little ugly flowers I've gotten for cute little boys over the years I've been a mother. And I love each and every one, for a second. Hehe. Until I can ditch the horrid little flower :) LOL! Anyway, always wanted a cute WordArt to use on picks of little boys (or girls, I guess too), with Dandelions. So here's what I came up with - hehehe.
