I had the opportunity to go home this weekend to visit my family. I am one of seven children and it is not often that all of us have the opportunity to be together. From ages 25-13, we all are unique but amazingly enough we all get along so well. Growing up, we were all homeschooled. My two older sisters were homeschooled through high school but I went to public high school. I feel very fortunate to have these years spent at home growing and spending time with my family.
Families are teams as well as any other group of people. You work together to keep the house clean, do the chores, and make sure everything that needs to be done to keep one another happy and healthy. Keeping everyone in positive spirits and working together to keep everyone in line is all apart of team work. Communication with plans, who gets to use the car when, activities, dinner times, everyone relies on communication.
This weekend was a great example of how my family worked as a team. I picked up my sister who doesn’t have a car in DC, one of my brothers picked up my other brother from practice and brought him to meet up with the rest of us at a fun little spot in Onley. We made the plans work because of our positive spirits, excitement to see each other and communication skills. All things that can keep teams going 🙂
