VBS Certificates and Prayers

Here are the girls' VBS certificates.. I'm so proud of both of them, they both did so great throughout the week:


One thing I did forget to mention in yesterday's blog is about Josie praying. At night we have always said the "now I lay me down to sleep prayer" followed by "God bless" and then we would list out every single family member and friend. Well one night I decided to do that prayer along with a regular prayer, you know where you pray that God helps you be better people and you thank Him for the day and your friends and other situations. So I did that the first night and the next morning as we got ready for school. Well that next night Josie asked if she could say the prayer and my heart leapt. Of course I said yes, so now when we pray in the mornings and at night she says a "big girl prayer." She prays that they be good girls for mommy and daddy and Ms. Erica. She thanks God for the sunshine and when Grammy was here she thanked God for letting us celebrate Grammy's birthday. (I didn't tell her to say this, she came up with it all on her own). Jolie always chimes in on the "Amen." It is an amazing and powerful thing watching your child learn to pray and talk to God.
