WW #112: Spending Time with Family


In my Weekly Wrap Up, I usually attempt to feature some of the more interesting and adventurous things my family might be up to. My best quality time with the kids, though, takes place at home when we decide to do nothing. For us, having a large family frequently means that we’re divided up. Off one goes just when another is getting dropped at our door. So my cherished times happen when we all end up together doing just about anything or nothing. I love reading to the kids, eating meals, playing Monopoly, and trying to convince my kids to watch what they consider to be “old” movies (i.e., Indiana Jones!).

If you’re looking for some fun games to play with family, take Marielle’s lead and consider karaoke. This week she played quite a bit of it on her bed. I can’t believe she knows the words to so many Katy Perry songs! Get some plastic microphones, turn on the radio or your playlist, and you’re ready to roll.quality time with kidsfun family timeWhen you get home from school, the best is combining snack with family time.large family bonding timeOr having Daddy take you down the street to Amorino, which makes the most beautiful flower-shaped gelatos.spending time with familyThat’s it from this neck of the woods.

    Spending time with family is so important. Especially when children are younger. Kids grow so quickly…I know others tell you this, but seriously, when the kids turn into teenagers, it really seems like the kids toddler years just flew by. Enjoy those years as much as possible.

    • I’m trying!! It seems like they were all just babies yesterday. 🙁

  • Phyllis Profitt-Sanders
