We didn’t plan it. Somehow it just happened.
Our two oldest boys headed out for a mission trip with our church youth group. Our two youngest boys stayed back with grandparents after Memorial Day festivities. That leaves us at home with exactly…zero children.
None. No kids. At our house. For four days.
Whatever shall we do with ourselves? ;)
We’ll likely spend our time balancing work on big projects (Matt painting the house, me writing away on a new ebook and eCourse) with sitting and relaxing together. We may actually have conversations that don’t end with dangling paragraphs left unfinished.
I’m pretty sure I have no idea how to cook for just two people. I am quite certain the house is way too quiet. And the laundry pile? It is freakishly small.
But this gift of time is one that we’ll cherish together while our kids are having a blast away from home. Then, come Friday, we will welcome all the noise back into our house, along with a week’s worth of mission trip laundry, extra kids to feed (cousins are coming!), and a mad dash to get our oldest straight off to Leadership Camp.
