Cousin8 & Cousin4 came over for a couple of hours so their parents could go out to dinner for Uncle Jace’s 37th birthday.
Having family around is very handy for these little freedom forays into ‘big people’ world. Like us, Uncle Jace & Auntie Bell are spoilt for choice as we each have both sets of parents and a sister within an easy car trip.
I’ve done childrearing without close family around, and it is harder by more than a few degrees.
The kids love it when they have company. Tonight they played Memory with a set of Ben10 cards and generally turned our house upside down 🙂
Have to agree there.. it is very hard without close family connections 🙁
