Evening Firefly Hunting...




Each evening the little ones ask me to allow them to hunt for fireflies.  Sometimes, I am nice and let them.  Though it was hot and muggy, it was good to be outside to watch their excitement and to see the sun set so spectacularly.  Bedtime is not my best time of day...  it is often a struggle for me to keep my temper in check, so it was nice to surprise my children with a few minutes of play when I am usually rushing them into their pajamas, through evening prayers, etc.  These happy moments are are worth a later bedtime!

I always found the time from dinner to bedtime the hardest time of the day with little ones. And to make matters worse, that was usually the time my husband arrived home from work, so that was his impression of us - frazzled and not necessarily happy. I'm glad for you that Father is there during the day when you all are at your best.
