Over the weekend I attended a homeschool graduation ceremony, and each graduate presented a short photo montage of their favorite memories. Without exception, every montage contained photos from family vacations. With summer approaching, I want to encourage all of you to plan at least one family trip away from home. There’s something about exploring a new environment together that bonds the family and forms forever-memories. And, Dads, this is the one time during the year that your kids will have you all to themselves, as long as you don’t take “work” with you. No trip will be perfect — there will be all types of highs and lows, but those will become something your kids will talk about decades from now.
On my blog I have numerous articles about family vacations and travel. Just do a search for “travel” and you can read through them.
Remember, the days are long but the years are short, and speaking as a mom who just graduated her oldest kid, make all the memories you can now, while you can.
