Dominic, aged 11 months: Yesterday I took the kids to church all by my onesie (Matt was sick). We haven't been to church since David was an infant so it was all a new experience for me. I debated putting Dom into the nursery but ended up deciding that was best. He missed his morning nap entirely and only fussed "off and on" which I think is nursery speak for he was a pain in the hiney. But he survived. I survived. And maybe we will do it again.

David, aged 3 years: This child has been asking to go to church for months. I know, right? He waltzed right into his room and right up to the train table as if he had been there a hundred times. He turned around to me and said have fun mom! And that was that. They said he did great, shared well, etc. He needs to work on his coloring skills, clearly. He had a super great time and it was the best day ever.

Letteria, aged 5 years:  The reason for all this insanity was that this little lady was singing at church with her other classmates. Two services. I was there to support her. In between services they did a craft detailing what they are thankful for. Her? She is thankful for her house, her family, her friends, and playgrounds. Respectively.
