Enjoy ‘Em

Having fun as a family and one-on-one as parents and children is one of the sweetest gifts of life!

We enjoy our children when we celebrate special moments and holidayssingread, work, teach,inspire, cook, pray, play, watch movies, serve, create holiday traditions and do everything else as a family. There are so many wholesome family activities to do together!

Basically, it’s really fun to have fun when you can do things as a whole family.

It often takes preparation, but that is also part of the fun of enjoying our children!

Our first triathlon together (summer 2016) was SO fun and such a personal triumph.


I hope you can find some ideas that help you think of ways to have fun with the children in your life. Here are some posts I have written about how we have tried to have fun:
