My children love to have a family dinner that gets a little rowdy, where we all get a little silly, joke around and laugh till our sides ache.  The more into the fun their father and I get – the happier and more excited and in tune the kids are.  They also love to get [...]

Connecting – a quick thought

June 12th, 2005 · No Comments
