Family Interests

Here in a couple weeks our family is taking off for Vegas to go meet up with Curtis's family. We are super excited to see them since we haven't been able to see them as much since moving to Alaska. But one of the reasons that we are excited to be going down is because we are going to be there for Passover.

Curtis's brother-in-law is from a Jewish family and for the past several years his family has invited us to come celebrate Passover with them, but unfortunately we have never been able to go. But it just so happens that we are going to be there for it this year.
Curtis and I are not Jewish and don't know much about the traditions and customs so we decided that we wanted to make sure that we knew as much as we could before going to celebrate this holiday with them. We sat down and looked up the prayers, customs, food, and reasoning behind this holiday. Doing this got me thinking about the importance of this holiday for their family and how I wish that I had tried to get more informed sooner.

This Family Moment Monday is a challenge for everyone to try to educate themselves more on their family. Not just brothers and sisters, but in-laws and extended family. To take a special interest in someone and try to get closer and understand that person more. By doing this it will not only help you to bring your family closer, but how special do you think they are going to feel that you are taking a special interest in them, their lives, and what is important to them.

Please remember to add your link only if you are participating in Family Moment Monday. Family Moment Monday consists of people who are sharing crafts, activities, lessons, ideas, service projects or anything else that you can learn/do/enjoy as a family in your post.
