"Children do not need to learn to be better, told what to do or shown how. If they are given access to enough of the world, they will see clearly enough what things are truly important to themselves and to others, and they will make for themselves a better path into that world than anyone else could make for them." John Holt
Got up this morning and did our usual Sunday morning routine, Mom and Dad get coffee, newspapers, and breakfast for everyone.
When we got home Miss Dora was already up and watching Disney channel. Our plans were to go to church however she again wasn't feeling 100% so we decided to do bible study at home. So after we had our sausage biscuits Dora decided she wanted to begin reading to us the book of "Esther". So with Bibles in hand Dad gave her a little of the history and then she proceeded to read aloud the first chapter, we stopped off and on every few minutes discussing the things she was reading. She wanted to know why the Bible usually only mentioned men so we explained because it was written by men because most women could not read or write at this time which of course lent itself into the discussion of women's rights.
Afterwards, the boys were slowly waking up and having breakfast when we decided to go to Dollar General and pick up a few things which turned into a 2 1/2 hour trip when we stopped by Lowe's to look at paint. We bought some paint for the bathroom and I also decided to get a few marked down containers and paint my cabinets in the kitchen as well. They are old and whilte and can never look clean enough.When we got home Bubba and Bret had already organized there cards and was ready to head out to the local card store to hang out with their friends to play Yugioh cards and Smash Bros. on Wii.
Here is the before picture: (finished picture later as we are between coats now)
Dora and I spent along time painting these!She also got some practice with the drill as one of the doors needed to be taken down and glued.
As I write this Dad is still painting in the bathroom, the boys are still at the card shop, and Dora has now began to make bracelets on her rainbow loom.
