These are the activities from our jar.
Saturday (Kent): Everyone pick a story for storytime. I had a storytime with Lissie, Clark, Katy and Kaomi with books that Lissie and Katy picked before lunch.
Sunday: We didn't pick from the jar, but we did take an evening walk and took an unexpected stop to play at the playground.
Monday (Clark): Share a verse from your Bible with everyone. These are the verses we shared.
Clark - Psalm 147:5, Felicity - Ephesians 4:32, Kaomi - Genesis 1:1 & 31, Katy - Ephesians 6:1, Kent - Acts 16:31, and Mommy - Proverbs 19:23. We also went to Chick-fil-a for lunch to support some short term missionaries who are going to France. They were having a fundraiser there.
Tuesday (Felicity): Have a timed race out front - see if you can beat your time on the second and third races. I drew a chalk starting and turning line. Then everyone took turns racing to the turning line and back while I timed them. Here are the results in seconds:
Kent: 18.1, 15.5, 16.3
Katy: 15.9, 15.7, 15
Kaomi: 21.1, 21.1, 17.7
Felicity: 25.1, 27.7, 27.7
Next the three older kids raced against each other. Here are their times: Kent - 16.4, Katy, 15.9, and Kaomi - 21.3. Clark had fun running up and down the sidewalk, too. I didn't time him. I found some coupons for free hamburgers when I was cleaning last week, so I got the kids an early supper for free when we were out running errands.
Wednesday (Kaomi): Play x-box. They each got to pick an x-box game they wanted to play and have 30 minutes of screen time at quiet time. They all picked a different game, so they each played separately when it was their turn.
Thursday (Katy): Paint toenails/Warpaint. Kent and Clark got their warpaint on and the girls and I painted our toenails. I felt really odd seeing my toes shiny every time I looked down today. My usual footwear is shoes and socks, so I put on a pair of sandals, just for today.
Jeff took the kids out for ice cream in the evening. They met up with another dad and kids we know.
Friday (Kent): Speed Clean your room for 15 minutes. When we cleaned I found a book in my room so when our cleaning time was up I read The Quilt Story to the kids. Then Clark got to pick another activity from the jar. He picked - Wear a costume for the day/rest of the day.
