In this season, I want to re-connect with my kids. Just have silly fun with them, you know? Talk to them about life. Help them understand fun, and themselves, and what it means to be part of our family. Our family is *fun*. Super high premium value. But a large part of that has been lost over the past several months.

So the other night I took the advice of one of my mentors. We threw a big sheet over the coffee table and we all crawled under there with a flashlight and read a story together. Great FUN. The kids were so excited.

And another night I stuffed their mouths full of whip cream for finishing their math flash cards before their timers ran out.

And we had breakfast for dinner. And ice cream for dessert on a week night — way against the rules!

What ideas do you have?
