First Personal Prayer

We were getting ready for church this morning and when Oliver and I came out of our bathroom we found Addison kneeling in our bedroom saying her own prayer.  She was mumbling, "father, love thee, church, bless me, amen" and other little short phrases.  It was darling and precious.  We pray at least a dozen times a day and she loves to repeat the prayer and have a turn but we've never her seen her do it on her own.

It just melted away the frustration from the 6 times she had already sat on the naughty chair this morning!  Of course, when Oliver asked if she wanted to say a prayer together, she had to thrust her hand out and scream at him "no - I do it!"  Nice...

We're glad she's learning and that she loves to pray though!

So cute! I still think Cameron has no idea what it is we're doing when we're praying :)

Thank you for all the updates! I love all of the pictures! We have started calling our KitchenAid the "mmm, tasty" too. That hike looks awesome!
