Our spring break just ended, and I admit I did not complete many of the tasks on my “To Do” list. I had plans to keep up with my blogging. Get a few work projects done. Work in my readers’ notebook. Just be highly productive. That did not happen. I did not complete one work project, and no updates were made to my readers’ notebook. I missed a few days of blogging. We were off adventuring, and I just decided to unplug from it all. I know I broke my commitment, and I feel a bit disappointed. However, I think sometimes we have to be ok with going off the grid and leaving the “To Do” list behind.
Technology is a wonderful tool, and I am thankful every day for the wonderful innovators that bring the world closer and closer to my fingertips. But while the outside world feels closer than before, it is easy for the family members inside the home to feels worlds apart. We can get to a point when our eyes are on a screen more often than another person. I am just as guilty as my boys. But last week was a little different. Last week we spent time riding rides, watching movies, and just having fun as a family. We did new things together, talked to each other, laughed with each other, and it was just what we all needed.
We are all back on the grid now, but I look forward to going off again sometime soon!
