It was summer. The sun shines brightly but does not feel that hot on my skin. I think it was just about a fine 23 degrees Celsius. Just enough for us to enjoy our trip to Ballarat. We were going to attend a family friend’s wedding. But maybe because of the bright and inviting weather, my mom suddenly decided that we make a stop along Murray River before we go on our way.
It was supposed to be just a shortstop, but then we ended up staying for a day. My mom fell in love with the place. Since it was her birthday also, we just go as she wished. We rented a cottage, and my dad arranged for a boat ride.
Your child is anxiously awaiting the arrival of the holiday break. They can’t wait to be home from school, have freedom in their schedule, and are super excited about the upcoming holidays. — Julie K. Jones, Ph.D., LPC
Children are a joy to be around, but having them tag along when going on a trip is a bit stressful. No matter how excited they are, they can still be annoying when they get bored. The solution to having bothersome kids when on vacation is to keep them happy and busy.
