This weekend, it was lovely to see so many families on campus; it is always fun to watch parents come to campus and guess who their children are! On Sunday, I also got some of my own family time – we played outside for almost 2 hours which is a long time for little people. There was sledding, swinging, falling down, snow throwing, and always a few tears. But, it was great to watch my kids play together – especially with matching gnome hats 🙂 (fashion tip)
Today, in West and the World dot 7, this got me thinking about siblings. I am lucky enough to have 3 siblings and am still close with all of them (my youngest sister, Sarah, teaches 7th grade science this year at Gould). There are a lot of siblings at Gould – in fact, more than I realized! I never appreciated having siblings until I was older and we could hangout without fighting. There are nine years between Sarah and me and we have a sister (Lizzie) and brother (Kevin) in-between. Growing up with siblings teaches people many important life lessons such as – sharing, arguing, teasing, deception, bribery, and anger management. All kidding aside, I think I am a better person for having 2 sisters and a brother. Here are some of our own spiffy Gould siblings!
