We treasure the simple things in life (smiles, a thank you, when little one closes his eyes to pray, helps you with shopping without being asked, tides up, brings you daisies to sniff), we go with the flow, and also get on with what needs be.
Picnics and BBQ s are lots of fun for large families, it’s very easy to put together a team and play a game of soccer, cricket or volley ball etc. Catching up with other large family friends is even better, you can never have too many kids and it makes for great fun.
Children of large families stick together, play happily and keep an eye on one another and older siblings tend to watch the younger ones. Parents of large families are possibly more relaxed too and rarely stress unless a older child comes running to report an incident.Dropping in unexpectedly is something large family friends don’t mind either; we are all alike and have the same amount of mess, laundry and dishes. When ever either of us visit, it is only natural to help one another out or we overlook the chaos and enjoy each others company as do the children.
So getting back to my dear friend above; if you haven’t already read about her upcoming holiday ~ Catching my Breath and a Little Sun on the Side then you best go right ahead and have a read. I am very blessed to have such a friend to allow me to tag along with her on this adventure…..an exciting or very unusual experience.
A holiday away with a friend is something a mother NEVER gets to do, hence we are jet-setting VERY soon (Pam and I are both counting down the days), so be sure to join her Facebook page, so you don’t miss any of our adventures (I would also love to see her page hit over 100 too, can you help her out there)?
Last but not least, welcome to those who just found this blog and I hope you all stick around. You just might see another post of mine here again in the near future ~ so you have No Excuses not follow both blogs at the same time, take care and thanks for stopping by.
