καλος ηρθατε στο σπιτι
Last week we welcomed three dear ones back from a four week stint in Greece. From what I could tell, it was a glorious time, although they sent very few pictures. Fr. G, M, and Z began their trip with a three week stay at our archdiocesan camp, and then spent a week staying with different friends in Nafplio and near Athens. It was a work trip for Fr. G, who was a staff priest while there, but for the kids it was an experience. They remember a bit of Greece from our time there in 2011-12 (poke around the blog to see what we did), but I'm so glad they got to see it with the eyes of older teens. I don't have a lot of stories to share here--for starters, it wasn't my experience. Secondly, I haven’t heard much about their trip and if I press too much, my kids will stop sharing. I've learned, over the years of sending children to camp, that if I just wait quietly the stories will be told.
One thing I will share though, is this delightful recreation of a picture my husband took in Mycenae a decade ago!
