This year I am making more of an effort to play more board games with my kids. In fact, every Wednesday afternoon we’ll be sitting down and playing a board game. I know it seems very specific, Wednesday afternoon, but we take Wednesdays off from school here. It’s a nice break in the middle of the week.
