Tonight was Cookie Baking Night. In attendance this evening: Ethan and Emily (Carissa had soccer practice). We made our classic summertime treat, dirt cups.
First, we crushed the Oreo cookies (always a fun time).
Then we layered them into cups with chocolate pudding.
And don't forget the gummy worms.
As a bonus feature this year, I found these small plastic cups that come with lids (just right for holding a flower, the perfect final touch to our dirt cup/flower pots).
Since it was just the two older kids this evening, and we were planning to go through two lessons from Leading Little Ones to God by Marian Schoolland, I let each of them read the lesson tonight (and I read the Scriptures from the Bible that went with the lesson). Emily read lesson 70 "What It Means To Pray" and Ethan read lesson 71 "Praying in Jesus' Name". They really enjoyed reading the lessons (and especially asking everyone the questions at the end), something they beg me to do every Cookie Baking Night. It's fun to watch them grow and mature over the years.
As usual, a fun time was had by all.
