As full-time working parents of children attending public school, limited after school time is particularly invaluable to us. It’s also very easy to get sucked into the daily rush. This daily theme for after school family fun idea helps me plan better and have more meaningful family time in the evenings. Let me know what you think of it and whether you do anything similar. http://practicalmama.com/2017/04/daily-themes-for-after-school-family-fun/

Do you think of new year's goals and plans for yourself? How about your children? We did this at the beginning of last year. This week we reviewed how they had done. It was really interesting for them to see what they planned and what they had accomplished vs. complete forgot about.

Do you involve your children in your new year's goal planning? http://practicalmama.com/2015/01/setting-new-years-goals-with-children/
