Read, Pray and Sing

A while back I bought a Bible story book for us to read with Camden. After Christmas we started reading one story a night. After we read, we sing a song ( or two, or three) and pray.

It's been neat seeing Camden's interest take hold in this new routine. Now he won't go to bed without reading his Bible story book. We've also been able to teach him a few new songs. The problem is that now he thinks that each story should have it's own song. Tonight we read about David and Jonathan...and Camden wanted to sing the Jonathan song (anybody know one???). Tomorrow we'll read about Abigail....and no, I don't want to sing about Robby's dog.

Another neat thing....tonight we were in Meijer and Camden was singing along, in his own little world. He doesn't care that Christmas is over....he wants you to have:

A holly, jolly Christmas...it's the best time of the year.
I don't know if snow, snow snow so here's cup of cheer.
Oh oh the mistletoe hung where you can seeeeeeee
Somebody waits for you...glooooooooooooooria.
In egg shells sees dayooooooooooooooo.
