I’m sitting here typing one handed because my thumb is being held hostage by a three year old. I have a five year old clinging to my other side and Scooby Doo is on the TV. When family comes to visit, it’s always a giant house party. Bubbles, side walk chalk, hopscotch and tag bring me back to my own childhood where we were thrown into the yard and left until dark. Having young cousins around is so much fun, but incredibly exhausting. They have so much energy! However, they love the camera, which is great fun for me. They even wanted to take some themselves. I’m amazed at how clever they are and its so much fun to watch them figure things out while staying so open minded and innocent. I think we should all try to remember how we thought about things when we were that age and be a little more like them.
