Day #84: Gathering with Friends

My kids (and husband) have caught soccer fever thanks to the World Cup.  It is quite funny to see how excited they are about the USA's upcoming game.  My husband and I thought it would be fun to invite a few friends over and have a little party to cheer on the USA during their match against Portugal.  The kids were quite excited and counted down the hours until the party all day.

We had a low-key, family friendly gathering.  We didn't make a fuss about having a pristine house (picked up, but certainly not scoured!) and made sure our gathering was simple and not stressful.  I think it is so important to show our children it's okay to welcome others into our home without planning for it weeks in advance or making a big deal about preparing for guests.  Our goal is to welcome others, provide a meal, and enjoy the company...and that's just what we did.
