Sleeping in the church hall
Originally uploaded by PhylB
We decided to let Felix(12), Marcel(11), Theodor(10) and Charlotte (8) sleep in the church hall the other night while we adults slept in the manse. The church hall is an adjoining building so technically they were still under our roof but the kids thought they were on some very exciting adventure away from home. With their own kitchen, toilets, tables and chairs we figured they'd get up to all sorts of nonsense staying up half the night wrestling, but we were more than surprised when the first secret adult spying sortie revealed that at 11pm, they were already quietly huddled round a table playing cards and we were more than astounded when the lights went out shortly after. I guess they can be trusted after all!
