husband started a new family tradition a few months ago.

if you are familiar with the lds-faith, there is a tradition on monday evenings called, ‘family home evening.’

basically, the idea is that one evening every week {give or take on the actual day and time but mondays/7pm are very traditional} you don’t plan anything else but being with your family. typically, there is a gospel-inspired lesson + maybe an activity + a snack, and maybe more or less. family members take turns planning the evening or, a special outing. whatever you do, the time is designated for family. and, at this time in age, with so many distractions it really takes scheduling one evening every week to avoid other events to create pure family time.
