I came home tired and spilled out from an amazing women’s conference in Illinois. We were all tired but JJ had read Aster’s post and knew I wanted to celebrate, so we got creative yet kept it sweet and simple.
Since the boys had youth group, JJ and I decided to take Aster out on a mommy/daddy date Sunday evening. It was so much fun having her all to ourselves. Then, when the boys came home, we did one of my favorite things. We threw a blanket on the ground in our backyard and hung out as a family talking and throwing a tennis ball across the yard as the sun went down.
Not everybody was thrilled with the idea (ie. the 15 yr old), but I pretended he was glad to be there. It was so peaceful. Funny how much I love doing this yet it’s been so long since we have. That will be changing. It’s such a perfect way to end a weekend and begin a new week, together. Next to my time with Jesus, sitting on a blanket watching the sunset with my family… it just fills me up in a way nothing else does.
What is something you enjoy doing with your family? When was the last time you did it?
