SOLC 31 of 31: Making Time for Family

After multiple e-mails, texts and doodle calendar polls, we did it! We found a time for our cousins and their kiddos to come to our house yesterday. It isn’t easy. Living across two states, kiddos ranging from 4-19 and so many schedules to juggle, it isn’t easy to find a common time to get together. But, we did it.

And no matter how difficult it is to find the time, we are always glad we did. I set up an early easter egg scavenger hunt for the littles (and the bigs helped them read the clues), we made sugar cookie dough that the kids helped cut into spring shapes and then later decorated and we played games.

I didn’t stress about cooking, (I didn’t have time), I just got food ribs and chicken and mac and cheese from Costco and you know what? It was good and it was good enough! Others brought appetizers and desserts and we just enjoyed each other’s company.

We’ll be together again in a few months for my son’s Bar Mitzvah, but this kind of time together is different – informal, stress-free and just plain fun. So glad we made time for cousins.

    When we get together without pressure, that’s fun. No stress. We make time for what is important to us. Family first.

    Loved that tech wasn’t in these activities. Cookies and egg hunt. Sounds like great family fun.
