fSo here we are in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. Children have been out of school already for a month, they are doing some educational enrichment through some aspect of online education from their school teachers. Some of the parents have even begun working from home, some are struggling with perhaps not working.
In all of this I'm reminded of a post by my good friend and senior student Master Dan McCarthy where he talks about building Legos with his boys. What is really important is that he has taken the time to spend with his children.
As my boys are teenagers it becomes harder and harder to get them involved with family activities, but I still try. Last Sunday my wife and I played a card game with the boys. We have to look to have fun with them because before we know it they will be off to college, or like our oldest two, about to have children of their own.
Take the time and enjoy the time with them.
