Of course, the main thing is that our families are here. And that means love abounds.
We are at my mama's house right now- full of character and creativity is what this home is. Oh, I just love it. The kids have a blast feeding the goats across the street, collecting rocks from the driveway, playing in the "cousins room" and just being with family. I'm afraid logistics of being a mama away from home sometimes makes it hard for me to fully soak in being with the family, you know (baby sleep disruptions, fussy afternoons with toddler, kids needing a bit more guidance without a rhythm to our days, etc)? Still, the opportunity for the kids to know and grow in their love for their fam is very, very worth it. Already, there have been such sweet moments.
