The fun is fun. Don't get me wrong. The din of bbqs and social gatherings and the trips to the beach with friends are what I crave all winter long, and finally it is here and it is great.
However, the part that I seem to persistently overlook is that I still need to rest. My kids still need time gather their thoughts and figure out what they think about things. After a string of busy activities, my kids often get to a point of frustration and if we go past that point, downright fury.
The minutes leading up to our visit to the Fort Point Museum were fraught with stress and misunderstandings. The kids were tired and fed up with following our plans. The adults wanted to squeeze in something that would interest themselves.
