The Influence of Good People

"The presence of good people in your life can have an enormously positive impact on your children."

(one of the most delightful and insightful books on 
simple and community living that I am reading right now)

I am so grateful for the time I get to have with my nephews.  They have such an amazing circle of family support around them.  There really is no question how much these kids are loved.  I am currently learning the value of living more in community with others, specifically family, and hoping to create that type of life for myself.  These photos were taken by a friend, who is like family.  And I am reminded that spending time with good people is good for us all.
