In a blink, the first term of the academic year is coming to a close. With Dana in Primary One, we’re finding it hard to carve out time to hang out and relax as a family. Daddy ‘s long hours at work also mean that the kids only get to play with him on weekends. So last Sunday evening, after a simple home-cooked dinner, we loaded our bicycles into the car and took a leisurely drive to our favourite garden. Even though the sky turned dark soon after our arrival, we spent an enjoyable time cycling and connecting with one another as a family. I have forgotten how simple joys can give such a great morale boost – no agenda, no fanciful dinners, no swanky gadgets, just good old outdoor play which did wonder to our souls. The kids came home happy and contented to go to bed, and we feel ready (almost) to take on a new week.
Precious family moment…doesn’t have to cost much…
I’m not a sporty person by nature – I can’t roller-blade, can’t skate, can’t swim (very well) and don’t have stamina to run but one thing I can do (and actually enjoy) is to cycle. So cycling is that one outdoor activity which our entire family would gladly do together, without leaving anyone out. On weekends when we have small pockets of time, we would cycle at West Coast Park, East Coast Park and Labrador Park. We love cycling so much we even cycled during our family vacation in Hualien, Taiwan! We’re waiting for buddy to grow a little older for him to join us on our cycling adventures. What about you? What is one outdoor activity that bonds your family? #FrisoMoment
Cycling refreshes our souls!
