On Long Weekends

As we approach Memorial Day weekend, a "long weekend" for most, I wonder what yours looks like. Lots of barbecues and splash pad time? Or maybe you're traveling, or seeing lots of family.

Or maybe you're not doing anything, and that's exactly what your family needs.

Doing nothing is fine too.

Whatever your holiday weekend holds, let's not forget the basics. There is a certain formula, a recipe for a successful family weekend, and it doesn't have anything to do with Costco splash pads or pasta salad. All we need to have a productive, enjoyable weekend with our family is:

A little rest

Lots of water

Some rays of sunshine

Maybe a vegetable or two

Movement in whatever way sounds fun

Present engagement with each other

That's it. We don't need to overcomplicate things. And guess what? That's all your kids need too! And bonus, if you do these things as a family, you'll be modeling simplicity, the basics that allow us to not just survive, but thrive.
