This past Saturday, we made a family pledge to unplug and reconnect with one another. That meant no email, no texting, no movies, no computer. We are definitely not the crazy techie-types who constantly surround themselves with a barrage of technology, but we had been finding ourselves in front of the computer more, and spending less time with each other and the tactile activities we so dearly love.
Saturday found us surrounded by puzzles and pencils, leaves and s’mores. And most importantly, we happened upon a day filled with the enjoyment of each other’s company, free of all the noise that seems to consume our lives so often these days.
