Breaking the Silence

Wow....  It has been a really long time since I last posted.  Life has been busy.  Preschool started back up.  So I am teaching two days a week.  I am coaching Sister Blessing's soccer team.  Brother Blessing is now extremely mobile, has no fear and a mischievous streak.  Therefore, I spend a lot of my time keeping him out of trouble.  He is also obsessed with the computer.  He will not leave me alone if he sees me on the laptop.  So while I have had several ideas for posts, I have not been able to actually write them.

And since I am so busy, what do I do?  I got sucked into Pinterest.  I really didn't need the time wasting aspect of it, but I am really liking being able to organize all the ideas I find on the internet.  Hence the reason for this post.

We've been encouraging Sister Blessing in her prayer life.  I'd been looking for ideas to keep the momentum going.  I found this on Pinterest today.  It's right up Sister Blessing's alley.  So I went on a scavenger hunt around the house to see if I had the materials I needed to make this.  I lucked out and found a big box of popsicle sticks from another project.  And I found a bucket we can use at least temporarily.  I eventually would like to make a nifty looking one, but figured the prayer part was more important than the presentation.  :)

Here is the "finished" product:

 We're going to have Sister Blessing pick out four sticks each night to jump start her bedtime prayers.  She is very excited about this and had to help me show off her new prayer bucket.

She can't wait to try it out tonight!
