Our Family Tree

We are going to be doing a Jesse Tree this advent, which is sort of like Jesus' family tree, so before we started it, I thought we would do our own family tree first to introduce the concept. This is what we came up with. Elizabeth had a wonderful time drawing everyone's picture and finding out all the names. When she was done she looked over it and said happily, "I have a BIG family!!". Looking over our family tree, I was so happy to see that it was relatively simple to draw and explain to her. I know so many kids in her generation come from broken homes, sometimes on both sides of their family.

I am proud to pass on our beautiful family to her. This tree is full of wonderful, strong and interesting people :-)
