We carved out a day this week to stay home ALL day (3 out of 5 of us did ... public high school and hubby's job wouldn't go along with my plan).
We could have spent the day working on a history project or digging deeper into math concepts.
But we didn't.
We gave ourselves permission to just do the bare essentials of school to count it as a day and then we headed out. It was the first brisk day of fall weather and we were itching to enjoy it.
Savoring the calm.
Most of us need time to savor the quiet. Sometimes we wait for someone else to give us permission to take the time to do it, though. If you are waiting, I'm giving it to you. Go. Find a moment of serenity and breathe it in. You need it.
The next part of my day was spent on a hike with my sweet boy. He knows how to win my heart...
