Family time is sacred around our house and we are sometime quite selfish with it. We do whatever it takes to sit down, all four of us, every night, seven days a week, for dinner. No exceptions. Sometimes it is crazy and the girls have gotten accustomed to eating anywhere between 5 and 7:30, but we do it. We also spend time every night doing something together. Some nights it is more grandiose, like a bike ride, going to the pool or a movie night, but sometimes it is simply tagging along to a Girl Scout activity or dance class, putting together a puzzle, playing a quick game of UNO, or our favorite - marshmallow roasting in the fire place.
On Saturday we were able to go as a family to Meghan's baptism. I am good friends with her mom, Jeremy is their home teacher, and Kirsten and Meghan are self-proclaimed bffs.
