Holidaying with kids is tricky. Even trickier when you throw your husband into the mix. We are busy preparing for our summer holiday and – I have to say – I am having a difficult time looking forward to our trip. Mainly because I am so unbelievably busy trying to make all of the preparations, pack and finish up all of my work before we leave.

I know, when I’m sitting on the plane, I’ll start to feel excited. Beach, camping, friends – what more could you want in a holiday abroad? We are so lucky that we can get away from the farm for a few weeks; that we have family and friends that can step in and help while we’re not around. Not many farming families have this luxury; and I’m really grateful that we’re even able to go.
