Claire has gotten really good at saying her prayers. Shane and I are really impressed with her at dinner every night. We can tell she is listening to others pray as well as she is learning at school and church. She has had some of her issues (if you want to know more, go back to Aug of 2008 when she started SonShine School) of having a hard time when I try to leave her at school and church again. She is really brave until we actually get there and they wells up and usually cries. She is fine once I leave, but sometimes, she is crying when I leave her. Her teacher has been GREAT and has helped a ton, heading us off in the hall and taking her by the hand before we have an episode. It is has also helped that we have been praying just before we leave the house and when we pull up to school, she always asks if she can pray about it "one more time to be safe" :). Last night she told me that ever since we started praying about it, she has not cried and that prayer really works...music to my ears. Here is a picture of my little girl the very first time she ever went to school...tear.....seriously, time flies by!!!!!!!
Now Owen, is just learning to pray and usually he just gives a solid "AMEN" after Claire finishes :)....good enough for us. The other night, he asked to pray when she finished, we let him, here is his prayer...
Dear God, Thank you for my Daddy that me take a shower when I poop my pants....AMEN!
Hilarious stuff!!! That may trump his other funny prayer a long time ago :)....
Happy Thursday!! Notice that I am blogging before school...Only one kid this morning to get ready and take, O is sick...school has officially started!
