Same time Last year

Last year we had the pleasure of spending our Memorial Day holiday with a great group of families at a Buddhist family retreat on Vashon Island in Washington State. The folks from the Puget Sound Zen center are great friends! My son Eli loved the sitting and chanting and tea service... all around being part of the ceremony, the chores and the community. The idea of introducing your religion to your child is daunting. My feeling being that I want him to choose his own path. Hopefully as we grow as a family, he will be exposed to various religions and spiritual paths and will be able to see if any fit into his life.
