It’s Sabbath here. Handsome started teaching again this week. He feels very tired and very fulfilled. I feel a bit empty, because I want to be back in the classroom too. The girls and I packed the week with fun things. Hit up the fair, hung out with friends, watched Handy Manny, memorized a Ten Commandments poem, played with our animals.

Sometimes I think Sabbath is the hardest part of being an Adventist parent. It’s a great blessing and wonder, but man, all I want to do is take a nap. But the littles in our lives don’t allow that. 😉 So for years we’ve been figuring out what to do. Usually a nap wins.  But this Sabbath, dh took the youngest on a nature walk while the oldest snuggled in to me for a nap. Growing is hard work for almost-five year old! While she was settling down for a nap, I put white noise on Spotify and started searching Pinterest for Sabbath ideas for families. It’s called “Sabbath Cans“. She has a free printable for things to print on sticker sheets, put in a can and on Sabbath, a family member draws an activity from the can and the family does it. I think I’ll have to modify some of them to fit our needs for where we live and what our family “cans” are.

Here’s to a better Sabbath for us.

Alphabetically speaking I'm a mom, a Seventh-day Adventist Christian, teacher, a student, a wife. In all these aspects, I'm always learning and putting together my learning. As an ENFP on the Myer's-Briggs Inventory, I also process things externally, so this time, I figured I'd save on my phone bill and blog about things instead
