i love my family. i love that we have two vacations a year where everyone in my immediate family gets together to hang out. it feels a little bit surreal - how many families with 4 children can get together for a week at a time " enjoy the time together? 6 kids who are 9 months to 8 yrs and 9 adults makes for a whole lot of chaos.
i felt like i could have used more time with them, but as john mentioned...i could never get enough time with my family. having a family as strong as i do makes it easier to be so far away. seems backwards, but it's how i feel.
