I heard Kevin Leamon say once that when one member of the family participates in an activity, the entire family participates in that activity.
He meant it as a warning that we over program our families not just by what we put each individual kid in but by how many things the family does as a whole. In other words, every time a child is at practice during dinner time, the entire family is missing an opportunity to eat dinner together.
As I was sitting at Sam's soccer game Saturday and watching it through my viewfinder, I pondered his statement and wondered if there might also be a positive spin to it.
Perhaps (with the right balance) when one member of the family participates in an activity, the entire family has an opportunity to embrace that activity too.
In their own unique way.
