Had a wonderful evening in the backyard with the kids. Our son grilled meat, corn, and peppers. We had cold beer and wine, and the charming two-year-old played with the hose and red plastic sand pails. Good conversation. Made me feel like we actually have a functional family, at least for a while. As my husband and I are growing older, it seems like the kids are taking more leadership in the family, and making it work better. Perhaps I was too reluctant to have fun when they were growing up. But good times can still await us.
