Quiet Time Delight: Reading Our Bedtime Chapter Book to Brother

Little House on the PrairieLast month, when we went to Nana and Papa's, one of our audio books was Little House on the Prairie.  Upon our return, Luke asked if it could be his next bedtime chapter book.  And, so it was that we began reading Little House daily (albeit, with some of the less-than-friendly for three- and four-year-old parts edited out.  You know, the talk about massacres and whatnot.)

Well, one day, when Jack was sleeping in another room while Nina, Luke and I attended to play, learning and chore activities, I suddenly realized Nina had disappeared.  Where did I find her?

Reading Jack a bedtime story!

Yes, Big Sister could not resist going in to wake Jack, because she realized he hadn't had a story before sleeping.  What a delight it was to witness them "reading" together.

Missions and goal of loving others, not to mention developing a love for literature, for that day -- check!
