About a month ago, Shawn and I decided that we were going to start our own "Shipman Family Tradition." We thought that it would be fun to designate Friday nights as our Family Night. There are no hard and fast rules to define what exactly family night is....we have done pizza & a movie, game night (candyland & chutes & ladders), and one night Grace decided that all she wanted to do was play play-do. So, that's what we did.
I just recently came across a website called Families with Purpose. Their website says they are an "organization dedicated to helping busy parents create a meaningful family life for themselves and their children. Through our articles, products, and resources, we empower families everywhere to take control of their family lives and live their life with intention and purpose. And most importantly we advocate the little things in life, because they really do matter!"
That is exactly what our goal was in designating Friday's as Family Night. We know that our family is one of the most important things in the world to us and it's important to cherish the years we have with our kids. So......if you try to call us on a Friday night.......we're not going to answer because it's FAMILY NIGHT :)
