Together Time

We received a call from Rebecca's nursery teacher Sunday morning and she wanted a digital picture of Clark and Rebecca together for a lesson on Fathers. We searched and found that Clark takes most of the pictures so we hurried and took this sweet picture. Rebecca has always had a special relationship with Clark. The first of the morning she will say, "Where's daddy." (Clark is usually at school already) Her happiness is always complete when she is with her father.
As I was falling asleep last night I was thinking of the great blessing it is to have such wonderful children. David is always doing little sweet things for each of us. Rebecca has such a concern for other's feelings and will be there hugging, kissing, and loving someone who is sad.

I changed things around in the children's rooms and made room for Rebecca to sleep in David's room since her room will eventually be our new baby's room. When I was putting the children to bed last night, David really wanted to have Rebecca in his room so he wouldn't be all alone, but Rebecca didn't feel quite ready to give up the crib. David started crying feeling lonely already, and Rebecca saw his tears. I told her that David really wanted her to sleep in his room, and she said, "okay." They slept too! What sweet children, with such tender feeling. Children really are a gift from our Heavenly Father. What great treasures they are.

That is such a beautiful picture. You can see the twinkle in her eye. JoJo prefers Steve too so I totally understand.

We tried the sharing a room thing here too for a little while. Lex was all for it and loved having her with him. JoJo did not like it and so we moved them back. I am so glad your children liked it and the night went smoothly.
