I still love Friday nights. I want my kids to love them too. Anticipation is such a great thing. But when homework isn't an issue yet you have to be more intentional about making Friday special.
Our answer? Family Game Night.
So yesterday I was intentional about planning a fun evening for my husband and kids. Here is what we did:
1.) Started out with Wii Sports, played with Daddy while Mommy fixed dinner;
2.) We had yummy tacos, fixed any way they wanted to eat, no forced veggies tonight;
3.) Then we had a modified scavenger hunt, preschooler style;
4.) Pajamas time, because they were exhausted from running, running, running;
5.) Followed up by a vintage board game from when Daddy was their age;
6.) Bedtime stories, they each got to pick one, instead of just one story;
7.) Mommy and Daddy still had a long evening to enjoy because the kids were in bed by 7:15!
