A tradition I am thankful for

Some traditions we have in our family:

Every year we go camping for Father's Day. It is nice to get away from house and spend some time together hiking, swimming, and roasting smores. We didn't get our trip in for Father's Day this year, it was too chilly still. So we've got a camping trip to make up for next year.

Every Christmas the kids and I put together a gingerbread house. It is one of our favorite things to do during the holidays.

Another Christmas tradition is to make as much of our Christmas gifts as possible. This year we've been working since June on fun projects that are going to family as Christmas gifts. The kids are having a lot of fun, and I believe the recipients of our gifts will be pleased.

Jonathan and I have been talking a lot about traditions lately. We'd like to incorporate more of the traditions from our youth into the traditions of our family, and we'd like to establish some new traditions to help strengthen our family. We have so many grand goals, but we've been able to implement a couple of our new traditions and have watched how they've blessed our children and our family. Hopefully we can keep a good thing going!
