Living Lovely with Family - Weekly
Authored by Mom
Week two of Living Lovely with Family over at Mt. Hope Chronicles. Heidi's having a fun party and I've so much enjoyed seeing what others are doing to connect with their family.
This week we're talking about connecting on a weekly basis. What is something we do on a weekly basis?
~ tea on Tuesdays - I started this a year or so ago. My children love this.
our table set for tea - complete with brownies and our reading selections...and eager kids too
We have tea*, along with something to eat. . .toast, biscuits, cookies, cakes… add in some soft music... I read to them, poetry, Bible stories, stories that stir up those character traits we long for, maybe just a story that has nothing to do with anything. We often have a small craft too, but not always. If the kids know its Tuesday they're asking for tea!
* "Tea" may be tea, hot cocoa, chocolate milk. . .we are enjoying ourselves and they are only little once. But generally it's some sort of tea. Honey anyone?
Connecting with my husband:
~ book/Bible/sharing time on Wednesday nights - we've done this before but never always stuck with it. I would like to get into a habit and then continue it but we never do....I'd like to start up again....anyone got a good book to read with my best friend?
I would like to do more on a weekly basis but so far this is all. I know that as our lives change and my children get a little older, we'll have more opportunities to make memories in many special ways.
What do you do to help connect with your family?

Leave Comment here...Your kids look like they are having so much fun with their tea time. I love that idea! I also need to have consistent date nights with my hubby. Maybe that will be the thing we add to our routine this next month. Thanks for joining in!
