New Traditions

Trying to institute new traditions is more difficult than it always seems, when you first get the idea.  I had to purchase our very own Seder plate for Passover this year, and Lenox had an incredible sale going on, so I also decided, on a whim, to purchase some candlesticks and a challah plate, so that we could institute a family Shabbat.  Well, so far we've only done it once, but I have high hopes for trying to make it a regular part of our new routine once the school year starts in late August.  It sounds like such a grand idea - to have a night dedicated to family, a nice home-cooked meal, and fellowship?  I think that's one of the most common yearnings the modern mama has.
