We don’t get much time together as a family. My husband works six days a week and takes classes in the evening, so our time is scattered. But for a week, we were a family without interruptions.
And for a week, we enjoyed every breathtaking view.
Because now, a week later, it’s gone. We are back to the grind. Back to a life of early mornings, air conditioning and walks in our neighbor.
We didn’t realize how much we’d miss the time together until we got back. We didn’t realize how much we would miss the opportunity to watch our children smile with every new experience, nap in the middle of the afternoon and just talk.
We are already counting the days until we can all take another break to be together…another vacation.
