Our girls especially love the time to get together with their cousins as according to them we don't do it often enough ... which is true, but life has a way of being busy and with us all having families that we are busy with, some more so then others :) Well, there just isn't time to go driving off every other weekend or so ... besides, last time I checked Rob's busy studying all the time.
I think between the three of them they manage to figure it out :)
The afternoon is usually spent with some outdoor play for the kids and doing various games or puzzles
whether it's something like Twister
or a requiring a bit more concentration like Chess
or just some good fun like Apples to Apples
Since we now use the school we also have a gym which is quite handy.
They had a good game of volleyball going on for quite sometime. I was not able to get any decent pictures ... gotta work on that, but here's one of Marietta serving. She wanted to play for a bit, but didn't dare since she had only just learned the basics of how to play a few weeks earlier. She finally decided to give it a try and had fun learning.
