I don’t know about you guys, but it seems like we ALWAYS have things that we have to do. It’s wonderful filling our lives with activities. Especially when most of them are to benefit raising well rounded children. However, sometimes you just need to rest.
Luckily, this weekend we get that. All 6 of our kids are here, which always makes me happy. Other than transporting them home on Sunday, we have nothing that we “have” to do.
We had homemade dinner last night. Took our time at the dinner table. Talking and enjoying each other’s company. The kids then all played outside. Then we watched a movie and had a couple drinks.
Today, we are still in bed and enjoying a cup of coffee while serving Netflix. My parents will be coming over later this afternoon to enjoy dinner with us. That is all that is on our schedule.
Tomorrow, I plan to be home all day. Maybe read a book, it’s been too long since I’ve read. I’ll probably make the kids happy with some pancakes and sausage for breakfast.
Then at last, we still have Monday. Yet another day to relax. It’ll be just our youngest here that day. It also looks like the only day where the weather may be OK to do something outside. We shall see where the day takes us.
I’m thankful that our schedules aligned in such a way that we’re able to enjoy this weekend in whatever way we choose. Relaxing and eating are our biggest priorities.
The next couple of weeks are packed with baseball games, dance recitals, birthday parties and other random events. This is the calm before the storm.
What are you doing this weekend? What does rising look like to you?
