What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

Quiet Time Entertainment

For the littlest one, a book or two to lull eyes closed work wonders.

For the older one~ rest time no longer involves sleep but quiet.

A few lifesavers:

stack of favorite books (naturally)

Audiobooks, "because sometimes I like to read without pictures, Mama." Present Favorite: Heidi

I Spy Books, or Where's Waldo

Paper Dolls

A notebook and pen, marker or writing utensil... for this:

Her idea, not mine. Now I *could* be all frustrated that she is not even trying to sound words out by spelling them.

But I am not.

Because the more she writes, the more proficient she becomes; the better form of letters, the straighter and more uniform size, etc. Most especially, the more her love of the written word grows.

Maybe she isn't reading books yet (like I had hoped), but there is no disputing one of her great loves...and that devotion to the written word is the most important thing of all.
