What Would Your Family Do?

No cell phones, video games, TV, Facebook. How about no Internet at all? What would your family do with the free  time? Maybe they would......
 Take a hike together and appreciate the beauty of nature.
It could be fun to meet a new family or two along the way,
 and maybe challenge them to a game of checkers....
or football.
They could toss the frisbee
and dive for a volleyball
Your kids might even decide to
Clean their rooms....
And make dear Mom smile ;)
But more than likely they would rather learn a new game. 
Especially one that allows them to clobber a brother with a dodge ball
The girls would also like to make a craft,
 or learn a new dance move.
Dear son can cut a pretty mean rug as well.
When not pretending to be Tom Sawyer.
As much as kids like to dress up,
They should stage a play.
Maybe your child would prefer some
one-on-one time with a special friend?
Or a leisurely afternoon ride?
Think of all the possibilities...
Learning new skills
Climbing to new heights
Taking a chance...
Conquering a fear.
Mom and Dad ought to be right there with them
Exploring new things- together.
Let's zip right along and cut to the chase
Unplug, reconnect and make some real time to spend with your kids.....
Because all good things really do come to an end.
One day you could wake up to realize that your 
middle child just left for college, and the nest 
 is emptying faster than you ever imagined. 
My children are a gift from God; 
I intend to enjoy the present.
