Family Home Evening
Family Home Evening is an interesting time around our house. Despite its chaotic nature we make the effort every Monday. We got out of the habit the last 2 months of my pregnancy with Naomi but now that things are back to our normal crazy we are having FHE again. Last night we talked about tithing and savings with the kids. We started by going to Target to pick out piggy banks with the kids. Nora of course dropped hers in the store and broke it and we had to get her another one. (Thank you to the workers of Target for not charging us for the broken one) We finally made it home and the kids were given 10 dimes. We talked about always paying tithing first. We showed them what the tithing slips look like and then helped them fill one out and include their tithing. They were so excited. We then talked about the importance of saving 10% for yourself whenever you get paid. The rest was just for them to spend. It was great to see how they reacted to it all. It was completely crazy but the lesson seemed to get through and this Sunday they all have tithing to give to the bishop! I am so thankful for FHE and the lessons it teaches my kids and the lessons it re-teaches me.
