Typical Day in Carmel Valley
In our perfect world we would have been able to have in depth conversations about all the aspects of this adventure and worked through any inconsistencies so we were completely on the same page.
In reality we had mini conversations in passing and agreed on a few core beliefs for the trip. Among them was to maintain daily structure and routine for the kids development…and for our own need to find time to work.
We’ve found it’s doable, sort of. Essentially each place we are in gets it’s own routine and we try to carry over as many as possible.
Our first stop was in Carmel Valley and this was what the typical day looked like:
Jon up early working before the littles are up
Gina does breakfast and then morning schoolwork with the kids
Then we switch
Jon takes kids on an adventure and does lunch
Gina does work
Afternoon adventure together
Bedtime routine - put the kids down
Jon and Gina work (with a baseball game on)
Obviously there were interruptions to the routine but this was a good representation of how we spent most days.
Adventures here included:
Walks to look at a horse that lived nearby
Going to the beach
Visiting with family and friends
Cooking dinners together
Watching more movies than we should
It was a perfect way to start this adventure.
Us 5 ~ with love
