â€œWe honor and obey our parents in the Lord with a respectful attitude.â€
We enjoyed Week 3 of Clay Clarksonâ€™s devotional, Our 24 Family Ways .
Through the week, we talked about ways in which to honor one another, as well as ways in which to obey our parents. We brushed up on our “Obedience Is” song, continued to learn “Trust and Obey,” and sang the good old stand-by “O-B-E-D-I-E-N-C-E” together.
To get “Family Fun Night” rolling, we colored in the week’s coloring page. This was fun! To apply our Family Way, I told the girls what to do each step of the way, and they answered with a joyful, “Yes, Mom!” For example, I’d say, “Find a blue crayon, and color in the Father’s pants.” Then, “Place your picture on the kitchen floor and color in the Mother’s apron.” Then, “Choose your favorite color, take it with you to the bottom step, and color in the flowers.” “Carry your picture on your head to the art table and color in all the shoes with the same color marker.” They LOVED when I told them to grab some crayons and finish the picture out on the sunny porch.
The evening wrapped up with Dr. Seuss Night at our sweet local library!
