Vacationing for our family might not be exactly what Greg expects. You see, I thrive on being busy, busy, busy.
When we went on vacation, we “slept in” until 9:30 or so. Swimming, resort activities, or visiting the park followed. Some days, there was shopping or seeing friends. We kept a fairly busy schedule, but nothing crazy. I think all days but one the kids got good naps, so we stayed on a good schedule.
But, Greg has a point, too. Vacations shouldn’t be exhausting or tiring. You shouldn’t come home from vacation tired (by the way, I didn’t), you should come back rested. It’s good advice.
And sometimes, the kids make their own schedule and remind you, it’s time to stop and smell the flowers.
