Grace Fight!

This evening on the way home from the grocery store Abby was singing in the backseat. She was mostly practicing her songs for tomorrows Father's Day program at daycare.  Too cute.

But then she pulled out the grace that she sings when she is in Sunday School.  It's fast, it's easy and it fun:

A - B - C - D - E - F - G - Thank You God for feeding me!

I told her that when we move to Saint Louis next month to live with her cousins she will be learning a new grace that their family sings before dinner. They sing Johnny Appleseed, so I sang that for her.

I'm not typing out lyrics, but here is a video example of other people doing it:

We then proceeded to have a Grace Battle - she would sing hers and then demand that I sang mine!  "Sing The Things I Need Song, Daddy!" 

This went on for about five minutes - and was awesomely fun.  I can't wait to teach her some of the Summer Camp graces that are so engrained into my brain from years at Camp Glenkirk!


  1. Yay!! I love knowing these camp rituals will never die and will live on in all the "Glenkirk kid's" (now adults)children!

  2. Nice. Quinn actually asserts fairly often that she wants to do "the grace I say at daycare" rather than the one we normally use at home. Fortunately that's just "God is great, God is good..." so we can accommodate her.

  3. Awww, I love all the adorable songs kids come home from school with!

  4. I used to sing the Johnny Appleseed in preschool! It's amazing the things that stick with you throughout the years!
