Call me a lazy parent, or unprepared, but at times for our Family Nights, I put Ad in charge of the lesson. And more times than not, she is usually jumping at the chance to share a little something she has prepared. Of course, her lessons always require visual objects including the chalkboard, some pictures, and anything else that is within her reach. Tonight, the lesson started off with a guessing game. “C8, who is this person that I’ve drawn on the chalkboard?”
“Noooo… I’ll give you a hint:” (and shows the following picture – displayed on her feet)
Of course! Why didn’t we see the resemblance? Why C8 thought Mommy and Grandma had a beard is beyond me, but a stick figure drawn in chalk IS hard to make out details. I’ll give her the benefit of the doubt. Ad did a fabulous job explaining to C8 that “Jesus made… (looking around the room)… “this couch, these Easter eggs, Mommy’s keys, this chalkboard, and YOU!” I think she definitely made up for our “calling in sick” yesterday to our church.
And to complete the evening, we had to make treats. The only requirements were brownies, which put us in luck! One of my favorite bloggers had posted a recipe I wanted to try out, which we did, and LOVED! I highly recommend these brownies. (And her blog. She makes me smile every time I visit!)
Just make sure you have plenty of eggs on hand. And a tall glass of ice cold milk to wash it (them) down with!
