I have always been a firm believer in the adage that life is not a spectator sport. And I've tried very hard to instill this into my kids, encouraging them to partake in sports, learn to ride a bike and just generally get out there.
All of that is simply a backdrop to my next observation: spending family time crafting while watching the world cup has been a great joy over the last week or so. I shall share the results shortly, but in the meantime I encourage you to enjoy some sport with your young ones. At the end of the day, spending time with them is a the rewarding common denominator :)
