I recently started a new tradition with each of my kids, starting with my oldest. We went out to breakfast at Hometown Buffet, his choice. We talked about school, friends, and food. Nothing too profound, but a good start. Afterwards we went to farmer’s market at the fairgrounds. We bought vegetables and fruits. We even visited the birds and ponies. Overall, a very good outing. The goal is to build bonds as well as deeper relationships with each of my kids. Next week my daughter’s turn.
