Hello friends! We are back from Spain!
We had a wonderful and amazing adventure, and I have so many things I want to share with you. While I took the requisite photos of cathedrals and castles, I also took lots of photos of playgrounds and kids at play. It was fascinating to see how play and parenting philosophies differ from what we’re accustomed to in the States.
My kids were fantastic travelers, a wonderful reminder to me of how travel benefits kids. They were curious, enthusiastic, and capable of more responsibility and independence that we are apt to give them credit for.
I’ve been home for a few days now, but I’m still just treading water. I can’t quite kick the jet lag, and I’m slowly trying to both catch up and get back on track. So please bear with me as I try to get back into a normal posting schedule. I have a feeling it will be limited to one or two posts a week until the kids are back in school. I want to savor this last month of summer vacation in a different way than we savored the first month. While the sight-seeing and traveling were full of fun and memories, I’m ready to have some lazy fun here at home before school starts. I have a feeling you’re doing much of the same!
I hope you’re having a wonderful summer so far! Thanks for continuing to read and share The Risky Kids, and I look forward to telling you all about our Risky adventures in Spain and London very soon!
