This is the final part 8 of our series –managing a large family. Saturday and Sunday are for family time
Come the weekends, these are times we dedicate to our family time. I do not schedule any special cleaning chores on these days. We do our basic everyday chores but that is it. We leave these days free for family outings, bigger projects with Dad, and any personal projects we might want to spend the day doing. I never plan on anything for the weekend. We just go with the flow and see what happens.
My husband is a visionary man who likes to get up and go sometimes. I as his wife, have learned the blessings of being able to grab the diaper bag, some sandwiches and be out the door for the whole day. We enjoy being together, park time is our favorite thing to do.
Sometimes on Saturdays my husband will need us to go do some running into town for parts for our business. We typically all go together and if I didn’t plan ahead for dinner, we might end up eating dinner out. Which for our family can get quite costly. I like to plan easy put together meals for this day. Nachos, tacos, homemade pizza, easy meals like that are quick to put together and usually require no planning ahead to make.
The weekends are spent together learning and growing with one another.
