Savoring time with your teens before they graduate high school will be one of the best time investments you will make as a parent. This is a sponsored post written in partnership with Michelin. All opinions are mine.
Over the next five years we’re savoring as much time with our teens as possible before they graduate.
Right now we have two teens and the oldest graduates in two years. He’s decided to attend school out of state and that means we’ll see less of him.
Knowing he leaves in two years, makes me more intentional about savoring time as a family. Connecting with my kids is really important especially since they’re get closer to being adults. Spending time with my kids comes natural.
Some of our best moments have been while playing games together, making food and traveling. We especially love to travel and try to visit somewhere fun every season. Our most recent travels took use to Disney World and then Virginia, a few weeks ago.
We’d just returned from a fun week in Disney and wanted to use our next vacation in Virginia to relax. We planned a slow paced itinerary where we could unwind. We took a slow ride up to the Glen Allen, a quiet little family town perfect for a weekend getaway.
We didn’t plan many activities because we wanted to go with the flow. On the first day we all hung out in the pool and hot tub before meeting up with family.
While in Virginia we shopped, did some site seeing and had family game night at Dave & Busters.
Weekend road trips are one of my favorite ways to savor with my kids.
My husband and I want to enjoy our young adults as much as we can before they ship off to college.
