Why is Time Away SO Needed for Couples?

Taking Some Time Away for a Happy Marriage

Life is crazy enough as it is but then add children and life picks up tremendously. It is SO easy to get distracted with life that you lose sight of what your true main focus should be. No one grows up saying they can’t wait to get married to have a miserable marriage. No one grows up with the idea that they want a house full of wild, rebellious children. Yet, so often that is what happens. In my almost 18 years of marriage, I have found that when life gets cluttered with a super busy lifestyle, your focus gets off of the important things. That leads to a mundane marriage or even an unhappy marriage. The children become out of control from the combination of a lack of communication between parents and decreased attention given to the children. So, what is the solution when life seems to be too busy?! Time away!

What to Include in a Camping First Aid Kit

Camping First Aid Kit

The type of camp vacation planned will to some degree dictate the first aid kit essentials. The potential hazards and possible removal from convenient medical assistance will be more of an issue when wilderness camping so first aid kits for these experiences may be a little more involved and require more careful planning. However, when camping at a designated campsite although it is useful to have a basic first aid kit incorporating certain essentials it is less critical as site owners will often have both medical facilities and trained first aiders. It is perhaps most prudent to assume these facilities are not available and plan accordingly.

Sweet Sixteen Celebration Was a Success!

Sweet Sixteen Celebration at Our Favorite Place

Oh, boy! I am not really sure how to feel right now. Excited yet sad at the same time. I now have a 16-year-old… oh, Sweet Sixteen! It makes me feel old to think that I have a 16-year-old but at the same time, I’m so proud of what he has become. 16 is a bit of a scary year for me. It is the year of independence far more than any of the years prior. It is when I realize that my boy is becoming a man. To think that he will graduate in just two years is exciting yet concerning.
