With the brief exception of a 15 month stint during a military assignment, my husband, kids and I have always lived hundreds of miles, and hours away, from extended family.So, we've refined the fine art of being hospitable towards each other; and inviting others who don't have family close by. Our African brother and a couple of empty nesters will come over later for dinner and croquet. We've tried to create meaningful holidays with our kids; days that are celebratory and full of fun!
Hospitality offered to the others in our home.
Easter baskets are full of food for the soul. And lots of chocolate : )
Cub loved the devotional book and the Klutz astronomy kit KB picked out for him!
A mid-morning walk to the river that borders our property, enjoying the beauty of the day after an exceptionally long and cold winter, the birds singing, the sun warm; spring beauty!
