Antonio cooked us an amazing Portuguese Christmas dinner again this year. Bachalau a Lagareiro (delicious potato and cod dish, literally the olive press owner’s cod).

I’m so grateful for the other adults in my daughter’s life. Since we live on the road, these people’s presence ebbs and flows and they get to spend concentrated amount of time with some of them. Antonio and Pascale are some of these important adults in our girls’ lives (and great friends!). They have contributed to so many great discussions with our girls and are always eager to offer them learning opportunities. I feel incredibly fortunate that we get to spend time with them and their sweet boys every year.
