My friend Crystal has a fun dinner time tradition. Every night they go around the table and everyone gets to tell their “high” and their “low” for the day.
In a frantic attempt to keep my family at the table for longer than the 30 seconds it takes to devour the meal, I have been asking for everyone’s highs and lows. It’s a fun way to share what is going on in each others’ lives.
Here are a few of my highs lately:
Reading in my hammock with the perfect amount of sunshine on my skin
Jumping on the trampoline with Jonah and Simon
Setting up the Christmas tree, and listening to all the kids say “Oh! I remember this one!” as they take out each of their ornaments.
Watching Simon imitate everything his siblings do or say
Getting those stinky baby chicks out of my dining room and into the coop where they belong.
