Started the day off with a walk (Elias in the Kelty) and Malcolm Gladwell. Then, boats, tubes, and sun. All day.
That is, when I wasn’t pulling our kids aside for one-on-one conversation (sometimes, after almost two weeks of vacation living, we forget family expectations).
judah: what it means to be a big brother and why we choose to believe and protect family, even when it’s hard.
Eden: a reminder of how much we are served and cared for throughout our days, and why we should then be willing to serve whenever possible.
Zion: after having her suck on a lemon, we discussed sour words verses sweet words (ice-cream) and why only sweet words should leave our lips.
Then, drinks and discussion as the sun went down.
