My son and his big cousin fell right into their play together as if they’d seen each other the day before.
But I wondered how well my daughter would hold up in the heat and with her younger cousins now that she is out of the kid phase.
It turns out, my daughter isn’t really out of kid phase (she spent the entire time we swam in the lake grabbing people’s legs underwater to scare them. It worked every time.)
I learned things about my grandparents that I’d never heard before- stories her father had passed to her. And she learned stories and perspectives that I’d received from my dad.
Evenings were spent by either ours or my cousin’s campfire, talking and laughing. I left feeling blessed.
