Slowing Our Pace

In the city, we're busy. There is so much going on that sometimes our days can seem like a whirlwind. And with Daddy on vacation for a few days last week, the days get even more packed with fun.

Today we are back at the lake and the pace is much slower. I think I forget sometimes how important and refreshing it is for us to have some slower-paced days. We have been able to make time for painting, and creating, and sibling play. It's a good reminder to pay closer attention to our daily rhythms and build in more unstructured home time, rather than always dashing off to this playground or that museum.
