SPT- play well with others...

I really look forward to Self Portrait Tuesday. I love the fact that it gives me a chance to journal about something I normally wouldn't have thought of myself. Today challenge is "play well with others." This topic really got me thinking. When I met Steve I was really kind of a sheltered girl. I was one that was kind of afraid to try new things. I didn't have any brothers growing up. Maybe this had something to do with it? I married Steve, and new I was in trouble! This man LOVES to play! We then had Benjamin, Nathaniel, and Jacob. Three boys in three, and a half years. I have stated before these boys are ALL boy! They love to play, and play hard. They learned from the best, their Dad. Sarah came along 4 1/2 years later. Sarah also loves to have fun! All of these years later I find myself skiing, quadding, hiking, water skiing, fishing, etc. I love being with my family. I do whatever they do. I have learned to have fun!!!!!!!! Here are some pictures that Sarah took of Steve, and I last night right before our walk. I think they fit great because Steve has been encouraging me to have fun, and play for the past 22 years! He has always been my cheerleader. Thank you Steve!

Go Suns!! I couldn't help but notice his cheery shirt. I wish my husband would walk with me. Sweet post. Okay this sounds crazy, but I didn't realize you had three boys too and one daughter. We do have a lot in common.

I think it is so great that you and steve still have so much fun together. I hope that we'll still be having fun together after 20+ years together. My family is like that and we love to play and do all of those things.

My family is a play hard family too, we love the outdoors and all that comes with being outdoors... I love that you still have that much fun together. What a sweet man to go on walks with you, most men don't do that.... Hope all is well and you are still having fun with Donna. I am jealous....

That is so cool that you have so much fun with your family. After 20 years of marriage I sure hope that I can have fun with my family, like you guys seem too.

Thanks for your post! It reminded me of how much my husband has helped me come out of my shell. The world really isn't a small place - that's what he's taught me. It will be 14 years in June!

Thanks again!

You two are so cute together, and isn't it funny how our husbands change us. In some ways I'm far more adventurous with Jim than I was ever on my own.

Your family sounds so fun!
