It is officially my sister-in-law's birthday today.Her step-sons are staying here this week along with her son so we definitely have a full house. Their mom was here last night too.
We had an An Original Pancake House breakfast this morning..so good.
The three siblings all have young adult children who each have unique challenges. How do we encourage independence? How much is enabling? Is gratitude too much to ask for? We want so much for our kids but it is so challenging sometimes. We've had numerous discussions concerning these issues.
We chillaxed in a bakery and bookstore after the drizzle cut our hike short. Onto a fancy birthday dinner tonight. Josh and Julia safely navigated their way back to Michigan today. The kids in NYC and Boston are facing walls of snow.
