So far February looks VERY similar to January, but I am okay with that.
Jeff and I and our kids sometimes talk about, “Why Not?”
(I think this idea originated with our friends, John Matthew and Megan.)
This is how it goes: Everyone takes a turn saying something that they might want to do by phrasing it with a “Why Not.” The only rule is that NO ONE can tell you why you CAN’T do it or why your idea is impossible or ridiculous etc.
It is fun to think big, or think differently, or to think your ideas out loud and just maybe put them into motion.
Recently my sister’s family was over and here some of the “Why Not’s” we came up with.
(I will say that this game can be more fun to play with kids than adults.)
(Remember the rule. You CANNOT tell the other people why their idea won’t work.)
