Relaxing Day with the Children
Most people would admit that family is a very important part of their life. I would also go as far as to say that family time in the developed world is under more pressure than ever. Work & Community priorities, family breakdowns and the invasion of technology into the home have all contributed to a reduction in Family Time. However, would you agree that family time is important to you?
I am also in the same boat as most. I work two jobs, have a business in partnership with my wife and I am involved in Scouting. These all take time away from my family. In this busy schedule I work on ways to involve my family in my activities and also have time to spend time with my family. Today has been one of those days. I have been home with the children…… And what an awesome day it has been.
The morning involved getting the house in order (duties) and shopping (including the weekly shop). Okay does not sound like fun; however it is important family time. Two of the girls made lunch, Pizzas…. Master Chef Style… under a time pressure. The judges (the rest of us) rated the meal very high. The afternoon spent watching the replay of the Olympics Opening Ceremony and one off to a birthday party. I even got to belay Angela at the end of the party so she would get a few more climbs in at the indoor rock wall.
It is always great to spend time with the family. I would like to spend more time with my family and it is always a delicate balance between family and other activities….. It is a busy world we live in…. How do you spend your family time? When is the last time that you had Quality Family Time?
