While I work hard to create moments of quiet in my day-to-day life, as truly we all need to have downtime daily, it’s definitely a challenge to accomplish this while homeschooling two young, active boys.
Every once in a while, as a family we’re able to take a longer chunk of time and set aside most of our everyday commitments. So while we vacation, we all try to take advantage of these moments to relax and spend unstructured, unhurried time together.
Yes, there is still cooking to do and boys to look after. Yes, there are some commitments while we’re away. But it all feels more relaxing when looking at this view. And the opportunity to sit on my in-laws’ deck reading a book purely for fun while listening to my boys digging the sand and splashing in the water nearby? It’s like heaven on earth.
How do you make space for relaxation in your life?
