we started off the family olympics with our opening ceremonies – family prayer and courtney leading us in singing the national anthem.
we definitely made the neighbor’s curious!
next vito led us in our warm ups.
think leg and arm circles… simultaneously!
we also had footballs through the hoola hoop, musical chairs (i was so close! and i did not cheat!), bowling, bucket brigade, chocolate cream pie eating contest, nerf gun shooting, name that tune, and a group song/dance presentation.
now, if you’re jealous because all you did was sit around all day watching tv, you should be.
and if you regret spending all your time and money doing your christmas shopping, you should!
because what we did that day was more valuable than any gift that could have been given.
we gave each other the gift of our time, which really is what will be remembered far longer than any gift we receive.
i am far beyond blessed to be a part of a family that places family and fun far above most other things.
thank you cheney family!
thank you for creating memories and enriching my life and the lives of my children!
