tradition!As we start our little family, I realize that we are lacking in traditions. We have started to create some traditions for Christmas, Thanksgiving, Easter...you know, the biggies. As for summer holidays and summer itself we are a little short of ideas. We watch fireworks on the 4th and go swimming as much as we can. Sometimes that sprinkler gets pulled out, but nothing really memorable that I can pinpoint as an actual tradition. As July comes to a close I realize we only have a few precious weeks left of true summer, so I feel a little urgency in my strivings to create an idyllic summer that celebrates childhood in all its curiosity and innocence for my kids.
I want something I can do now while we don't have all the resources we hope to have later in life. Something timeless that can happen in times of recession and times of plenty, as our kids our young and as they grow older. I am sure our traditions will evolve but I need help getting started somewhere. Any ideas?
What traditions did you have growing up?
What do you do with your family now?
