This was finals week for Paul and he was pretty much missing all week, spending all his time studying. The boys were not fans of the idea of putting family night on hold and I did not have very much energy (funny how his finals wore me out!)
The solution was to combine something I already wanted to do and do it on family night, dubbing it thus! I took the boys to a garden center and let them browse plants and trees with me, then we got the needed supplies and spent an hour or so planting. It was fun and my job got done and the boys were satisfied!
