Each of my four kids had a friend over for several hours. There wasn’t a single conflict. Link and his friend disappeared into Link’s room to film video. Patch and his friend took over the TV to play Boom Blocks. Gleek and her friend braided each other’s hair while listening to an audio book of Anne of Green Gables. Kiki and her friend invited me to play a game of Dominion. Everyone had fun. Next there will be frozen pizza. Possibly there will also be a movie.
