I should preface the Mission Statement by showing you the kids' contributions so you can see how we enlarged their ideas (things they thought were important in our family) :
JOSH: "support each other" = "celebrate each other's achievements"
"reading scriptures together and being kind to others" = studying scriptures as a
family helps us have a heart like the Savior's
"have fun doing things together"
EMMA: "tell the truth" = "we value honesty"
"share our feelings" = create a home where we feel safe to share...
"hugs and kisses"
"say 'please' and 'thank you' and 'I'm sorry'" = being respectful even when we are
frustrated or angry (a challenge in our home)
CALEB: "I'm glad we have spiderman pajamas and walls in our house"=???
And Mom and Dad filled in the rest, but the kids (obviously the older ones with some sort of critical thinking abilities) did a great job coming up with things they felt were important. This particular FHE was quite crazy due to the two toddlers mistaking this activity for a pillow fight, but the older kids seemed to enjoy it despite the chaos!
Now does anyone have any ideas as to what I do with this project to put it up somehow in our kitchen?
