Family Rules

We eat dinner together every single night.

Actually, every meal is eaten together at the table.

But at dinner, it is slowed, we talk more and of course, we are joined by daddy.

The kids take turns at saying "Grace", while we hold hands around the table.

They usually say one of a few poems which they all know by heart.

If it is one of the bigger kids turns, they will ad-lib with something very heart felt.

I purchased this particular bus roll months ago, but only just got around to having it framed.

It is now and "extra" that either Hayden or Lucy read after grace each night.

I was even chuffed when, without prompting, Lucy wrote some of the lines on a birthday card for her friend.

As you can see, it is in our kitchen, and that little desk is actually the kids computer.

So the bus roll is in a place where it will be read many times a day!

  1. I love that you sit around the table together for meals. We do the same. I think it's so important, and it's usually at this time that we hear all about the things that have happened to the kids during the day.
