This semester we started “Flapjack Fridays” with the girls from Wayne Country Day School. Every Friday I get up extra early and make a zillion pancakes (chocolate chip & regular) and a gallon of sweet tea for girls. If you’ve never had sweet tea with your pancakes…don’t. It’s weird.
Around 6:50 AM the door opens and my kitchen fills up with all grades of girls laughing and talking and being girls. I didn’t know if it would last, but it has become the thing they are most excited about in the week.
While we eat, we ask a question of the day and spend time checking in with each other. Then, we open the bible and talk about Jesus. Before they leave they spend a ridiculous amount of time making a notecard with a bible verse to put in their locker. We pile in the car and I get to take them to school – often while they sing songs in Spanish (they have one due every Friday).
