Grateful

We're just back from a week in Hawaii followed by a cozy Thanksgiving in Bellingham, WA. It's difficult for me to put into words what it means for a busy family to have so much unstructured playtime together, but it did give me lots of time to think about what I'm grateful for. There's too much for me to share it all here, but I thought I'd share just a smidgen.

For Everest, whose enthusiasm for whatever he is doing is infectious

He's about to start building the best sandcastle in the world.  Want to join in?

For Darya who helps me see the magic in our everyday world

Is there anything more magical than a big bubble wand?

For Eilan who reminds me that almost every upset can be soothed with a good, long cuddle.

Who wouldn't be cheered by this face?

And for my husband, whose willingness to put up with my wanderlust is surpassed only by the strength needed to make it happen

He's working up to carrying three kids and a suitcase at the same time!

And to you, dear reader, who gives me this little space on the internet to share my ramblings.

Much love and cheer to you all during this holiday season!

    Having recently a boy of my own, I can only imagine how much fun it can be to travel as a family and see the joy in our children's eyes as they see different places on our planet!
