I mentioned last week that over the Fourth of July holiday we spent a few days at my parents’ place in rural northern Indiana.
It was wonderful to spend some time with my folks. I think one of my favorite perks of parenting is getting to see my parents as grandparents. In some ways, it gives me a chance to get to know them in a new light. It is such a cool thing to see my parents and my kids enjoy each other’s company.
One of the highlights of our trip was that my kids learned how to jump rope under Grandpa’s careful tutelage. Who knew that, not only was my Dad a fantastic jump roper as a kid, but that he is such a good jump rope coach?
