Our vacation at the end of June made me realize something -- I'm missing the best days with my family. I realize I've developed some habits that aren't the healthiest for our family nor for me, such as letting Dave take the boys on the weekend and do whatever they want. Meanwhile, I stay home to catch up with dishes, lesson plans, emails, bill paying, etc. They come home tired, hungry and dirty, and I meet their needs and hear a few comments hear about their day before sending them off to sleep.
Well, that's just no fun for me. I don't want to waste my family days with home management duties. I want some F.U.N.
So this weekend I decided to change all that:
Aren't they all cute? How could I trade them for --ahem-- online banking?
Dave being manly and sitting under the waterfall. What a guy.
Conquered his fear of the cold and got wet!
Life is sweet. I'm thankful to God for the wake-up call.
