When we were on our own between court and embassy dates in Ethiopia, one of the things I loved was how easygoing everything felt. Our days were just peaceful and relaxed; we didn't plan a lot of activities or entertain Zinashi every moment. We would take a walk each day, and nap was a given, but the rest of the time we were pretty much just hanging out. Zinashi responded well to this, playing happily with her toys and dishes, helping herself to a little snack if she wanted one. I wish we could replicate this pace of life a little more at home.
In keeping with my Ethiopia nostalgia theme, I'll have one more video post for you to round out the holiday weekend tomorrow. We hope you and yours have been enjoying the long weekend and have a safe and happy 4th.
