Just in case you missed it…we announced earlier this week that our Wacky Wednesday family tradition is coming to IGTV as a weekly series! I’m so excited for this! It is such a special tradition for our family and something the kids get so excited for! We can’t wait to share our special memories & hopefully inspire others to pause and celebrate life with the ones you love the most!
How It Started…
We started this tradition earlier this year after being in quarantine for a year. Our life was on hold (like everyone else’s) and it was especially hard on the kids who were used to doing so many fun things. We all felt a little cooped up and it was definitely getting to us. This year has just been filled with challenges and changes that could have us stressed out and worried all day so we decided to take a step back and just enjoy where we are and what we have.
There are so many things in life that will be stressful and there will always be something to worry about no matter what point of life you’re in. It was getting to the point where it almost feels discouraging because it gets overwhelming to think about. After some prayer and positive thinking we took a step back and said you know what let’s just enjoy this Wednesday with the kids. Do something fun, put all our worries to the side for tomorrow and just enjoy the moment. So we did that. We had the best Wednesday ever and it was so needed. We realized we needed that little recharge to be grateful for everything that we have in front of us and put that worry into perspective. So from that Wednesday on we made Wacky Wednesday our family tradition.
What We Do
So every Wednesday we do some fun activities with the kids. Leave our worries, stress, problems, or work at the door and just enjoy the little moments. The moments as a family that will last forever. The moments that let us be carefree and have fun. It could be a big activity or it could just be playing with their toys or going to lunch, either way it’s a designated day to thank God for all our blessings and slow down and make memories.
I’d like to say I live everyday like this but we unavoidably fall into the hustle and bustle of our everyday routine. Which is fine too! That’s just the season we’re in and we want to be present and aware that every season is temporary. They change too quickly. So we will enjoy it while it last! We just always try to put an emphasis on finding those little moments in the busiest of days.
Our Goal With Wacky Wednesday
So our goal with sharing our WACKY WEDNESDAY adventures is to remind others to take a second to pause, identify what & who is important to them and take the time to celebrate that. Even if it’s not a full day. Even if it is just the way you wake up, a meal shared, a walk or something small. It will make a difference and be a small way to celebrate life and bring people together!
