Finally Friday

I'm looking forward to a wonderful weekend. My plans are to enjoy a delicious breakfast out, hopefully at La Madeleine. I love their food and an ambiance, oh so chic! After a good breakfast my kids and I are going shopping for last minute back to school supplies. We are going to get an early start Saturday morning because I'm sure the malls will be packed with shoppers. I also want to go to vintage shops and book stores. We usually go to a book store that has a coffee shop because my kids love cold coffees and smoothies. I like going through the magazines for design inspiration. The best times of my life have been time spent with my kids.

Back to School ~ Family Time
.
In today's society we are running at a fast pace, not just parents but also kids. Everyone seems busy running to appointments and activity practices. Technology has us preoccupied with cellphones, iPods, and laptops. Parents are often busy running the rat race at work. Kids want to be with their friends and play every sport. Everyone is exhausted by the time they get home. But there is no time to relax becasue there is still homework and housework. So what is the solution? My suggestion is that we put more time and effort into family time than we put into the extra-curricular activities. We need to remember that family time is vital to a healthy family life. It is important to spend quality time together to bond and feel at peace. As the new school year is about to begin, make your family time a priority. Slow down, pray together, laugh together, and enjoy family dinners together at home.

  5. Hi, here from FFF. My oldest still has one more year until school starts but believe me, I see what my nephews have to deal with, with school work and after school programs and I'm afraid, very afraid.
    Happy weekend!

  8. Hello
    I just kinda rambled onto your blog and was immediately attracted to your clear photos. They're great. I'm in the middle of researching cameras. Not too long into digital and I only have a crummy little camera that takes blurry pictures. Mac's are a little picky about the camera.
