Spending time together is always fun. I love watching Emma squirm away from me to get to her Dad. I love watching Daniel race down the hall towards me or Dad. I love seeing him turn and twist to look for his best friend, hoping he is at church, because church isn't the same, and he wants to sit by him.
Family is the basic unit of society, and being at church always reinforces that for me. We come as a family, we sit as a family, we have a chance to learn with friends, then we leave as a family.
I will continue to teach that to my children as they get older, I never want the happiness of seeing Mom and Dad leave their faces, teenage years are allowed to hide it as a show for their friends if needed...... But I will deal with that in years down the road, I guess that is why we are learning ASL right?
