Family Night- a few weeks ago.

ME: Service is when we do something nice for someone without expecting anything in return.


RILEY: If I help you make your bed? Is that service?

ME: Yeah Riley! That's it! What else is Service?

RILEY: Helping Mommy?

ME: Yep, Helping Mommy clean the bathrooms is service.
(This is where I need to tell that I have discovered that my children LOVE to clean TOILETS! I give them the scrubber wand - with the disposable soapy thing at the end - and they can be entertained for hours!!)

ME: What else?

RILEY: If Blake helps wipe my bum when I go potty, is that service?

Yep, you read that right.

ME: (not wanting to stifle any desire to serve) Uh, yeah, I guess that IS service...

SO, Primary President, do you have a lot of stickers for Blake's "Acts of LOVE", we have had a lot of SERVICE around our house lately...


  1. So funny! I love FHE with kids. It is so much more entertaining and the gospel essentials seem to be simplified into their most powerful element. Your kids are so cute!!

    Here is that link I told you about forever ago that I would send. I am so forgetful.

    It gives you a code to copy and put on your blog and then you can track who's visiting, etc. I haven't spent too much time with it - but it can give you a lot of information about the people visiting your site.

  2. lol love it! i can't believe he's talking so well! Thats so fun!
