As much as I hate putting these guys to bed early, I know it’s best for them right now. And there are perks of an early bed time routine. We read a book or two of each kiddos choice–today I enjoyed Captain Underpants and a musical Frozen tale. Then Camden has been reading a book to us every night. This is our Pre-K/Kindergarten/1st grade (until you can read us a chapter book so that we know you’re good to read them on your own) requirement. Now that I think about it, Liam started in 2011 and we have readers lined up through 2021–10 years teaching reading! Though sometimes it takes an extra dose of patience, it is the most rewarding and sweet part of the day. One reader down, one well on his way and two to more to go! And what better segue to bed than prayers from this sweet one.
