It felt like a full weekend—lots of soccer, yard work, a temple trip, grocery shopping, preparing for church assignments, church, and then a long Sunday afternoon walk. Dinner was a little later than usual tonight, which meant we got an even later start on Family Home Evening. Patrick and I were both falling asleep during Berkeley’s lesson on “don’t act all crazy during church or at home if someone’s trying to read a magazine”—not because it wasn’t entertaining (because you better believe it was!) but just cuz we were both exhausted!
After we finished our treat of key lime curd with fresh raspberries, I sent the girls upstairs to have Patrick put them to bed while I finished cleaning up the kitchen. When I finished about 30 minutes later, it seemed pretty quiet in the house, so I assumed that the girls were tucked in their beds and already fast asleep. I walked into my bedroom and found this:
Well, they weren’t WHERE I thought they’d be, but they definitely were asleep! Apparently they were too tired to even make it to their own beds!*
*Here’s my prediction on what actually happened: K & B came in to tell Daddy they were ready to be tucked in. He was half-asleep and said groggily, “I’ll come in there in just a minute, girls.” So they came in and laid down next to him to wait for him to get up, and 3.4 seconds later, they were asleep as well!
