Sandcastles matter more than you realize

The good thing about taking the kids to the beach or the lake is the poor cell coverage.

Very poor cell coverage makes for great family fun like building sand castles, playing Marco Polo, counting handstands in the pool, playing cards, or finding interesting shells as you walk along the shore.

When you are with your children don’t wait for a limited number of bars on your phone to have fun with them.  People talk about their ‘bucket list’ when in reality, the kids get it.  The buckets that matter are those filled with sand because the sandcastles they build will become the memories of their childhood spent with you.

Memory is a child walking along a seashore.  You never can tell what small pebble it will pick up and store away among its treasured things.  ~Pierce Harris, Atlanta Journal

    Hello Tina: I was in DC, Ocean City and Atlanta for the past 3 weeks. Enjoying the theme about how sandcastles matter when maintaining a good sense of communication with the family, especially the children. While in DC I was informed about a book “The Five Languages of Love”. I’ll send you the authors names later. Good book that covers much of what we have always known when raising and communicating with our “Little Angels” as my wife calls all our grandchildren. I loved your “University for Parents” in the Toys R Us series. Those were some of the best articles I have read and used when speaking with parents about raising children. Talk to you soon.
