Our Sunday was pretty usual . The kids slept in. We had a family breakfast (as in we all ate together which we dont do through the week.) We got ready to go to church except this week we were running late!!
Jess was on Childrens Talk: A 5 minute lesson for the kids given at the front of the church during the service. After that the bulk of the children upto 12yo go out for Kids @ Church (Sunday School). Jess gave a talk taken from the Character First Elementary Series on sensitivity though she had to condense it for the time frame she had. She did very well.
Josh was on the sound desk and though we were running late and he didnt have time to do most of his checks thanks to there being others who can do it now (he was the only one there for a while) it all went well through the service.
We helped the lady who was on morning tea, talked to lots of people and came home.
Once home we all go into relax mode, usually watching a dvd. But I had things to do so the kids went their own way and I locked myself in the office, coming out occasionally for food! I wanted to tweak our study routine and get prepared for the coming week. As it turned out I tweaked the routine twice, so it took most of the afternoon, but I am happy with the results. I feel that there is more breathing room, more margin now. I have dropped a few ideals as well as a subject or two. Reality is we wouldnt have done them anyway, so why have them on the routine. I want the paper goals to be as realistic as possible, a reflection of what really goes on here, not an unrealistic goal that looks great on paper but has no truth in it and just makes me feel like we aren’t achieving (when we no doubt do).
