Holidays and Change
My house is no longer a "little kid" house as my boys are beyond the toddler, grade school years. It is a much quieter house. I like it.
Now that the shift is here, I'm wondering about how we'll begin to change the holidays so that we still celebrate the special times, but we make room for more adult-like celebrations and fun.
This Easter, the transition caught me with a bit of a surprise. I really didn't know what to think, or how to plan so I didn't do a whole lot.
As a fan of regular celebration and family ties, I know now that it's important to recognize our changing family and gather in ways that celebrate those changes each year.
