Martin makes his second consecutive appearance here. This time, it's a brief post about impressing his daughter's second grade class with his crazy-mad disc golf skills.
New Year's Day Polar Plunge with Clients by Cynthia Tilghman
Cynthia also appears for the second time in a row. This is a cute post about her daughter's polar bear swimming abilities.
Well How Do You Like That? by Lisa Bosques
Lisa's post can serve as a reminder to all of us about the importance of following up and staying in touch, even with family members.
I Re-MEME-ber You by Adam Waldman
Take a minute to read Adam's engagement story. It is well-written and involves references to Meatloaf and Styx. It is worth your time.
The Garden by Paul Slaybaugh
Paul shows more of his sensitive side in this poetic effort.
More Quotes from My Children by Jason Crouch
I assume that the title of this post should be self-explanatory. I hope you enjoy it!
If you haven't joined or even visited the group yet, here is the description that I wrote there to give you some idea of what we are all about:
First question: Is this a fan club for the 80's sitcom? No. I just wanted to think of something memorable for this group. This is meant to be a fun place to escape the daily drama of the real estate industry. Please feel free to post any family stories or lessons here. We envision this as a great place to share funny stories about kids, marriage, siblings, parenting, or anything family-related. Posts may relate business to family life, or they may be about striking a healthy balance between career and life. Welcome to Family Ties!
So come on over and check it out! We're like one big happy family in this great group! If you aren't visiting this group, I can assure you are missing out on some terrific writing. I look forward to seeing you there. Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks!
Here is the last wrapup, in case you missed it:
