#1wordwednesday / teaching our kids to cheer on family – Haigler Hospitality {HABITS}

the daily Starr blog Starr haigler 8

Inspired by this photo from Joanna Gaines, several weeks ago I blogged about the {habit} of being each other’s biggest fan when it comes to our family.

I mean, who doesn’t love some Chip & Jo?!?!?!

This week we’re sharing one real-life example of how we practiced this habit in our own family.

Today’s #1wordwednesday Haigler Hospitality {habit}: teaching our kids to cheer on family.

To us, family means putting your arms around each other and being there. – Barbara Bush

If we don’t cheer on our family, who will? I want our kids to know they are loved, without a doubt. I want them to grow up cheering each other on. I want them to continue this tradition when they have a family of their own to lead one day.

Words from my previous post on this topic:

What if we were standing on the sidelines of everyday life holding our sign cheering on our family members???

More cheering. Less criticizing.
More encouragement. Less beating down.
More joy. Less grumpy.
More hope. Less doubt.
More love. Less hate.

Yes. Y’all. Let’s be the ones to do it.

Today was day 1 of the EOG (End of Grade) test for our oldest, Kayla. Yesterday, she walked into a surprise pep rally at home cheering her on!

 

Yes, we are THAT family.

Before you start thinking you’re too busy for such nonsense…

I used leftover party supplies that were in the cabinet, nothing was purchased for this surprise “party”.

This set up was done in less than 30 minutes as the kiddos were on their way home. Easy!

We used the same signs on the wall that we made last year for her first ever EOG pep rally. I filed them in my desk and knew exactly where they were to put back up. MIRACLE. Especially with all the moving boxes we have everywhere currently!!

Our party consisted of pizza, balloons, streamers and fun music – who doesn’t love that?? You don’t have to overcomplicate things!

It was certainly an afternoon to remember.

Kylie walked up to me at one point and said, “Mommy, will you throw me a party one day when I take the EOGs?”

Yes, sweet girl. You know I will!
