Remembering the Quiet Moments

Every now and then we like to slow down the pace and hang out at home, just us four.  Thanks to great weather, we spent a big chunk of our last weekend at home outside. Daddy put in a flower bed (with Mama's brick and dirt hauling help), and the kids played and played.  The only reason they didn't get sunburned is because they were under the deck digging in the dirt, out of the sun.  Mama finished painting the master bedroom, caught up on housework and laundry, cooked, and read a book.  After naps we went to the park and took the kids to get ice cream. We were never in a hurry or worried about the time. It was glorious to get some projects behind us, be outdoors in the sunshine, and just relax. Summer is coming, and with that will be plans, plans, and more plans.  Trips out of town will be abundant and there will be lots to do. We will enjoy every moment of the busyness, but we need to remember to plan for and enjoy our quiet moments too.
