Roses and Thorns

We learned at the White House lunch today that the Obama’s have a family tradition that I want to adopt at our house.

At dinner, they play a game called "Roses and Thorns." Everyone takes a turn describing a good thing that happened that day (rose) and a low moment or tough problem they had to deal with (thorn).

When the President finished his turn after a particularly challenging day at the White House (we didn’t learn which one), Malia told her Dad: "You have a really thorny job."

Smart girl!
