It is easy to love the people far away. It is not always easy to love those close to us. It is easier to give a cup of rice to relieve hunger than to relieve the loneliness and pain of someone unloved in our own home. Bring love into your home for this is where our love for each other must start. -Mother Teresa

Family Goal: Build a Fort and Sleep in It

This weekend we completed one of our family fun goals. Now this one wasn't new to us, we have been doing this one for years!

Not really the kind of event we can take good pictures because it is so dark. What you can't tell is that we are all wearing our coordinating Team Robey shirts! 

Because of our experience and now the size of our family, we have learned a few things: use mattresses on the floor, make it big enough for everyone to move around in, build the fort around the tv, don't eat a meal in the fort (only snacks), water bottles only, and finally and most importantly, it doesn't matter what it looks like to anyone else but only what it feels like to be inside.

This year we went old school with our movie choices: Disney's Heavyweights (one of my little sister's favorites!) and Harry and the Hendersons. Some of the older girls stayed awake and watched another movie but I can't tell you what that was and neither can Michael or Jo because we fell asleep.
