1. I declared it paper plate day. Fewer dishes to wash! I can't quite stomach the idea of plastic utensils or cups though; maybe after I'm the mom of 3!
2. We moved FHE to Sunday afternoons. My kids are little and in bed early, and trying to squeeze Family Home Evening into Monday night and still have a relaxing evening with the hour or so between Luke getting home and bedtime was just monstrous. Our lives are so much less stressful now!
