Building Cohesive Families

Happy Summer!

I’m headed out on a two-week writing retreat while my kids are away at summer camp—what a joy and luxury! I’ll be totally unplugged: no phones, texts, emails, TV. Just me and my reading and writing.

Back home, though, we’ll get into a new summer routine. Our plan is to spice up our family meetings, and spend lots of time with extended family—both of which will help us build a more cohesive family.

I wish you much joy this summer!
