when everything gets on top of me, and i’m feeling overwhelmed… the best thing i can do is drop everything, pack picnic and head out into nature. away from the computer, and the noise, and the never ending to-do list. out where i can hear the birds singing and the river whooshing by. down to the river, where the kiddos can paddle and build dams, and we can eat under the shade of a tree. or up a mountain where i can see for miles.
without the distractions of daily life and the constant humming of the computer or my phone i can think. think through all the things that i’m not sure about and everything seems a little easier. i long to run away into the wilds of nature and stay there – far away from the modern world.
we’ve just been kitting ourselves out ready to do some camping – my heart is excited at the thought of it!! any tips for taking kiddos camping??
