To be honest, this past month, with all the transitions we’ve been going through, I’ve really struggled to be fully present with the kids. I’ve done pretty good considering, but this weekend, I wanted to make a much more concerted effort to be with them. SO, on Saturday, Ezra and I walked around our backyard and found a whole bunch of bricks left behind by our land lord and we decided to build ourselves a braai (grill). In some ways, it will stand as an altar of sorts… reminding me of the crucial time I have left to spend with my children and instill deep values into their hearts.
Then today we had our first braai as a family. It was AWESOME. I think Ezra was proud of our creation… here’s a shot of him taking in our afternoon.
