Reason My Dining Room Table will never be free of Clutter....

I have a Dining Room with a large 8-10 person Table.  It's great everyone fits and room for company when needed.  But today I decorated the table with scriptures of Thankfulness that I printed up and framed, and then I put them out for display-
Well my Dining Room table is always a gethering place and not just for food but for learning, games, chit-chat, reading and art.  Of course we all help out when it comes to meals for the clean up but it all seems to make its way back there.
My little Bogan has been carrying around paper and crayons for weeks and his favorite drawing place is the chair right by the window at the Dining Room table, despite that there are desks and other places available. So the table will always be cluttered with art or for the other children-books and what needs to be there-but I don't mind because I get to see and hear about what is going on and at the end of the day an uncluttered table just seems empty and mine has family togetherness and just makes me smile and feel all loving and warm inside.


Here is where I am going to Share those moments that just come whether it be night or day and we take the time to seize every opportunity-

Just a quick chuckle; I was putting my sons down for the night and little Bogan asked for another drink of water, and I said no you have already had a large glass and used the bathroom-he said oh yeah-so I chuckled and said haha your plans to stay awake have been foiled, and he said yeah Mom you folded my plans.

The other night my boys were playing with their legos and when I walked by, PT had made a pyramid and asked me where the little guy was that he had, I said I don't know? And then he showed me he had hidden it under the pyramid-I thought and then grabbed that moment- I went and got out the history book and opened up to the ancient Egypt era when pyramids were built and why it was similar to what he did. He was amazed at the significance. We read and read and learned about them for 2 days.
