22 Sep A little neglect goes a long way
An empty Saturday approached. I had not one obligation to anyone other than myself and my girls. My husband and son would be camping. Our high school exchange student would most likely be hanging out with his friends. Giddy with “girls’ day” excitement, I made this list of all the fun activities we were going to do (prepare to be wowed):
2. Go to Landis Valley Museum.
3. Visit a library.
4. Take a walk on the path in the park near the library.
5. Play mini-golf.
6. Eat fro yo.

I hesitate in giving the advice: neglect your kids. However, I do think it’s good counsel to leave them alone sometimes. Let them come up with their own plans. Who needs mini-golf when you have a backyard and a friend, or clay and time on your hands, or unscheduled hours to get needed rest?
