Good examples

We've made a resolution to read the Book of Mormon together as a family this year. It's the first time we've really attempted it with our kids. I expected it to be a fight every night with only a few verses read while tantrums are thrown and minimal understanding on the kids part. I have been very pleasantly surprised by the example my kids set for me and Kevin. Kassidy has been really good at reminding me every night that we need to read before bed.

After tucking the kids in at night Kassidy likes to read by flashlight for a few minutes in bed. And of course, Korbin has to copy everything his sister does. I come in after about 10 minutes and turn off their lights so they can sleep. I came in to do that one night and found this (I promise this wasn't staged)...

Kassidy had picked out the Book of Mormon to look at for her story and grabbed Korbin one too. These too melt my heart and are such good examples of what is important, even if they can't really read the book yet :)

I love that. Matt and I always say that we need to be good examples to William and the other day I realized that William is the good example we need to follow! Little kids just have things right! Your kids are adorable. :)
