Family is the better part of life! Recently we visited our two sons and their families in the Seattle area. Between them, my sons have seven children all under the age of eight! (Without the commotion of little ones, life would be sterile and one dimensional.) Chaos is not only tolerated, but is invited in these families because Chaos is creativity! Each person has their own perspective, whether they are two or thirty-two. We certainly celebrated an array of differences on this last trip.
There were watercolor painting sessions; building block towers to be tumbled; Candyland games to be played; a reptile show to attend; split pea soup to be consumed; a neighborhood walk pushing the stroller and exploring; church clothing and play clothing and sweaters for the cool days; baths for messy babies; discussions and football for the adults; a library visit and finally a stroll on the Puget Sound waterfront.
Needless to say, we had a wonderful time!
When was the last time you had a family gathering that you enjoyed?
