I want my kids to be able to defend themselves in life, and know what to do in an emergency. Unfortunately we live in a world where on a daily basis we have to be aware and alert, it is sad, but it is reality. They are making it really fun for kids, excited to check it out, and then we have a birthday party and more cousin time.
We had a wonderful Shabbat last night with all of our family, and today hung out in the park most of the afternoon together. I love how all the cousins play together and have a good time.
Next weekend, my side of the family is coming to visit, love when cousins stay close as kids and close for life. I am blessed to know my cousins that are all over the world.
