As I mentioned in an earlier entry, I wasn’t been great about scheduling time with mine or Josh’s family while we were home. We were really lucky to have Josh’s parents visit us for a month around Christmas time, giving them some quality time with the kids. And my parents are bound for Barcelona for 10 days in October.
However, despite these visits, it’s never enough in my mind. I want the kids to have a great relationship with their grandparents despite only seeing them a matter of days per year. And with my inability to schedule well, they have not gotten time that they deserve.
While my parents have not had a lot of full days with us, they’ve had the kids most evenings from around 6 til bedtime / 8:30. It’s not a lot of time, but it’s been good quality time with the kids relaxing after a long day and just hanging out with my parents.
But we did have a few full days with them and on one of those days, the kids got to go go-karting. Funny enough, they ran into Aidan’s friend Max and his family while they were there. Small world!
