I haven't been very good about posting the last couple weeks but we are in the process of moving-TODAY!!! Thus, the post at 3 a.m. I've been up all night just thinking about today. So excited! Figured I'd get caught up on here since I can't think of much else to do at this hour.
For tomorrow, I thought it would be fun and EASY (EASY being the honest reason) to do something that corresponds with our move. This has nothing to do with the theme for the week of "I am blessed when I choose to follow the prophet" but I figure that if I even show up tomorrow, I am doing good, right? :)
The kids are going to help me pack up for the big move. I put several items in a bag. I want to make sure that I pack up these particular items for the move as they are some of the most important things to me. I will call one child at a time to come up and pull out an item. They will try to guess why that item is important to me and then put that item into my little suitcase.
Picture of Family (definitely want to take them along)- A happy Family
Scriptures- Book of Mormon stories
Picture of Jesus- I belong to the Church of Jesus Christ
Popcorn (food-can't live with it, can't live without it) :) - Popcorn Popping
Towel (important to keep our bodies clean and pure)- My body is a temple
Obviously this music time would only really be applicable to someone who's moving but who knows, maybe one of you are as well and this would work for you too. :) Have a great weekend!
UPDATE: I actually was able to tie this into the theme after all with some last minute thinking. I told the kids that I wanted to make sure that I had all of the things necessary in my new home to have the spirit there. The prophet has taught me many things that I can do to have happiness in my home. Then we went through all of the items in the bag and talked about how those items can bless our home.
