I hope no one will mind me sharing a little something that our family really enjoys. Every Monday night we have something we call Family Home Evening.
My kids love it, sometimes I'm lazy and don't really want to do it, but my kids are persistent and make sure that we do. We usually start out with a song, then a prayer, a lesson, (usually a scripture story, or lesson on reverence, or kindness or something like that, you get the idea) then an activity, and if I've gotten my act together a treat. My daughter loves to teach the lesson, it doesn't always make sense, sometimes she just makes up stories with our dinosaur flannel board set, but she loves it.
Sometimes we don't do any of that, we just go swimming or work in the yard together.
So, I hope no one thinks I'm trying to push our religion on them, it's just something my family really enjoys and it brings us closer as a family. As crazy as life can get sometimes it's nice to have one night a week set aside to spend time as a family. Do any of you do something similar? I would love some ides! I know you guys are out there, I really would love to hear from you.
