Life is busy, any parent will tell you that. Many are trying to balance full-time jobs, attend meetings, get kids to and from sports, have fun outdoors, attend school events and more. It seems we are always go-go-go.
My son plays soccer and baritone for his school band. We are constantly running for soccer practice and have to leave early in the morning for band. While my seven year old isn’t in any school activities yet, we continually bring her to friends and cousins houses so she can play.
Then, there is Bella. Our energetic 7 month old labrador puppy we have to keep active and social with other dogs. She is part of the family too and definitely keeps us on our toes.
Then the weekends arrive, when we can actually go out and explore and do things as a family. Every weekend we visit a local attraction, go on a picnic or head to my dad’s where the kids ride 4-wheelers or we camp. Adding family time is important. I want my children to know that even with our demanding lives, family time means everything to me. I encourage everyone I know to make time for family even if that includes playing board games, eating dinner together or just watching a movie.
Do I love this crazy busy life? You better believe it, but it gets exhausting trying to juggle everything and make it home just to feed my family some days.
