Postcards From the Vacation Front – Reconnections

Once More to the Landing

 

Our Michigan vacations are about unwinding, but they are also about reconnecting with family – extended and otherwise.  Reconnecting with extended family adds more kids to the mix, and at a certain point every day, at least one set of parents needs to reconnect with their sanity.

The Big Guy and I have been finding our marbles on a landing about 30 steps up from the beach.  At the right time of day the beach and the stairs are devoid of teenagers and tweeners (ours, theirs, and the neighbors). It is serenity.

And, having recognized the things we can’t change (the volume back at the house) and altering the things we can (our geography), we are finding it easier to reconnect with each other.
