We are coming to the end of spring break. It has been a chilly, rainy Saturday and we spent the bulk of it on the road coming home from a short visit with my mom. Four hours on the road. In the rain--at times torrential downpour in nature, at times gentle and sleepy.
One of my brothers and his family live in Mom's area, and it is always so much fun to get all the little cousins together for some special family fun time. We shopped, we cooked together, we ate, we played. A house filled with 5 children, however, is never quiet. At least, in my family. :) Did I mention 3 of the 5 are 4 year olds? And 2 of those are twins? Yeah, quiet is not the word here.
We had a great time, and I remembered something very important. Even though my writing goals and challenges are very important to me, and even though I love writing every.single.day, sometimes that must be set to the side. Rather than feeling frustrated or melancholy about that I will embrace these fleeting moments of childhood cousin fun (and chaos!) and be IN the moment enjoying it as well.
I'm behind in my Slice of Life challenge, but we sure had fun!
