Last night we went to my sister-in-law's home for supper. It was a great time. The 4 kids really enjoy playing together. Of course it helps that the younger are close in age. There is just about a year between each kid, with Kristen being the youngest. Sarah is only 4 years older than Zach so she is still not to old for them. After supper we went out and had a fun time competing in a whiffle ball game. The kids played the adults. The little neighbor girl came over so this made the teams uneven. The kids team consisted of Sarah 13, Zach 10, Austin 8, Kristen 7 and the neighbor girl who is about 5 or 6. The adult team was Kurt, his sister Ardith, her husband Carl and of course myself. A good time was had by all, including the neighbor's who came out to "cheer" us on. It reminded me so much of the family picnics we used to have every summer where all of the kids would get together and play softball. It didn't matter what the ages were, everyone played and no one needed to play inside or with game boys. It was a much simpler time then.
