Upon taking our seats on the church pews, as is customary for Joshua, he laid down to take his Sunday nap. (He does not nap any other day!) Another family joined our bench and Joshua was forced to give up his sleeping prep position. By the time both families were fully situated, it was noticed that Joshua didn't even have a place to SIT let alone lay down. The lady behind us kindly let him lay down on the bench beside her.
He was brought into Primary 25 minutes late with a wrinkled shirt and bed head hair. On the bright side though, he hadn't 'wet the pew' like a few weeks previous. (!)
With a couple of hours of absolute free time after church, my children instead spend the entire afternoon hovering within inches of Mike and me.
Luke hooked an old horse lead rope to the back of Megan's pants in an attempt to give her a wedgie.
Ellie was asked to be the first to write on a card to send to the grandparents in Washington DC. She took it upon herself to take up all the space and acted extremely put out when I insisited the other kids get to write their own name.
Mike laid on the floor for the better part of an hour convincing one kid or another to scratch his back.
Megan and Ellie chose to fight over a Princess Storybook that I would have thought was far beyond an almost thirteen year old's reading interest.
Due to a 1:00pm-4:00pm church schedule, Drew took no nap. Enough said.
Megan and Luke began to get a little too hyper and spent a good fifteen minutes or so winding Joshua up.
Drew oblivious to wildness, Family Council or naughty siblings continued to concentrate as he emptied the toy cupboard.
Whatever, roll on Monday when more than half of these people will be GONE for the day!
