Evening Time



http://radio.lds.org/eng/programs/scripture-stories-episode-1

With a busy school day and a busy play day, I have been wanting to find ways to make our evening times a bit quieter, calm, etc. I dont want to just sit around and watch tv. So I found a really neat website, and they have this scripture stories webcast... so tonight after a quiet dinner at the table, the kids gathered on my bed to listen to the first episode. They snuggled on the bed, with just my bedside lamp on and we listened. it was so cute! and it really made the spirit in the home nice and cozy. We are getting a winter storm, so it was nice to be cozy and warm listening to this darling webcast. I am thinking, I have found a solution to the quiet calm evenings. Then the kids can go right into their beds for their personal reading time.... we read scriptures throughout the day, plus adding the scripture stories, then they read a book of their choice in bed for half an hour, then prayers then bed. its nice. i think im happy. ;)

You find the coolest ideas. I've been trying to do the same thing. We've been having our scripture reading in the evenings before bed and it has made a huge difference in the bedtime atmosphere.
