SOC: Spending time with the Kids

the kids and me
I’ve been spending a lot of my time with the kids as it’s the school holidays now. It has been more exhausting then usual trying to keep the kids occupied.  We brought them to many different places this week and they had a blast playing and having fun.

Even though there was time spend with the kids together I felt that it was necessary that we spend time one on one with the kids as I can see that all three of them are craving our personalized attention.  I don’t want them to grow up being bitter with their siblings as they didn’t get special time with mummy or daddy when they are young.

I feel that it is important for each one of the kids to know that they are special and that I do want to help them develop their potential to the fullest.  Starting this month I will be scheduling one on one outing with each kid in order to build up a better bond with all of them.



SOC: Preparing for Easter

Easter Eggs © by albemar78

I can’t believe that we are into the final stretch of Lent. I have been trying to do bible reading daily but so far I’ve only managed twice a week. I really need 48 hrs a day so that I can finish all that I want to get done during this period of time.  I’m  trying to build up my spirituality and take a closer walk with GOD. It hasn’t been easy.

First of all  I have to have the correct mindset towards religion in order to lead my children towards GOD. I’m being trying to be in sync with my spiritual side by doing more readings and also reflecting on my personal values and those which I want the kids to cultivate.

I’ve bought a couple of books to read and am trying to get the kids to read the bible more often together with doing some simple bible related activities.  We got the Chicken Soup for the Kids Soul and hopefully be able to read some of the stories inside there next week in preparation for  Holy week.

How are you preparing for Easter?
