Family Game Night

Do any of you have a family game night? We get together on Friday nights and play Monopoly, and occasionally Clue or some other board game, as a family.

  • Yes! It is our one night as a family to reconnect and no one can miss it. For a few hours every weekend. Lately, it occurs on Sunday after church and it has brought us ever closer. Our one child will be off to college in a year and it is so important to cherish every minute you can. DO IT and make it a MUST!

  • We used to do this, but life is just so busy.

    Maybe i should make a plan to reinstate it!

  • The only way someone is allowed to get out of it is when my husband isn't home for work. He works in the oil field and doesn't really have a set time for when he is home or not. But regardless of if he is home, at least the kids and I still play. And when he's home, he wholeheartedly joins in.
