One of the things I have really been working on in this past year is spending more time as a gift than buying gifts. I arranged babysitting and took my husband to Arles for his birthday. Arles is one solid hour from us and yet, after 3.5 years, we had never been.┬áThat’s what happens when you work a lot and play only a little (we are working on taking time for more family play too!) He was taking a history of Christianity class last fall and this made of the history really seem a bit more real. Tough times, for sure! I’d love to go back, even with the kids. My oldest son is almost 8 and he is quite interested in history. We’d love to show him the enormous Roman ruins, which are amazingly well preserved.
