Living 1,000 miles away from our families it can sometimes be hard for the boys to grasp the concept that Grandma and Papa can't just swing by our house whenever they want. Trust me if they could they would! It really was a big adjustment to boy #1 when we first moved to Kansas. It's also hard for boy #2 who doesn't really know his Grandparents very well because we only see them a couple times a year at best. For him i really want to make sure that he starts recognizing them from pictures.
I have been wanting to make a family tree for a while now and i just happened upon a very cute one over at
Working on our Tree.....
I think it will be a great way for the boys to see the pictures and be consistently reminded of their Grandparents and that they are a important part of our family and their lives.
I would love to make one with Aunts, Uncles and Cousins too but I'm not feeling that ambitious today. I think this one will be a great start for us and they boys love looking at all the pictures.
