Here's a great list of ideas for Lent this year!

I'm still working out what we're going to do as a family this year, and what we're all doing individually. The boys don't quite understand the idea, and didn't like any of the ideas I suggested of things for them to give up. I'm torn between pushing them to give up something, or letting them choose not to give up anything since they are still so young. N suggested he would give up oranges and broccoli, but I nixed the idea of giving up healthy foods. (Although that WOULD be a sacrifice for him, since he loves oranges and broccoli. LOL)

I guess I'm especially torn about pushing them to give something up when I really don't know what I will give up this year. Some heavy thinking needs to happen in the next day around here!

  1. I'm struggling with this, too. This morning, I sort of just put it out there to them and told them what I am giving up (my beloved snooze button). I offered a few suggestions which Nicholas has talked about a few times this morning. I guess we'll see what happens. I think I'll just follow their lead, but I'm predicting that N will choose to give something up and A won't - lol. Oh, giving up broccoli would be a huge sacrifice here, too. Thanks for the thought provoking post :o)
