Listen in as Kira and Bill Van Ittersum talk about the “joy of allowing” as they explain how the project of decorating their Christmas tree truly became child’s play. Kids can do amazing things—as they demonstrated while sharing in this somewhat daunting task. Together, they created a masterpiece for themselves and others. As you can see in the photos, they also decorated ornaments of their own to hang on the tree. A lot of fun was had by all and lots of tricks were learned.
The lesson learned for Kira and Bill was to take a breath, trust, and say, “Of course!” when the kids ask “Can we do this?” If you give the situation a chance—and leave expectations at the door—the outcome can be delightful. We’re pretty sure this whole experience is going to become a Van Ittersum family tradition!
