That actually worked

Church nights are rough. We don't get home until almost nine and rarely get in bed before ten. Then everyone drags through Thursday and it is really hard for Dixie to have a good day at school.

Tonight, at 5:00 the kids took baths while I made dinner. After they ate, I took three children to church in zip-up footed pajamas. No one fell asleep on the way home like I hoped, but they did come home, brushed teeth and picked out books straightaway without a fuss.

We may do this again.
