At the insistence of our LifeCoach, we have begun having weekly family meetings. We have them on Sundays at 5:00 p.m. They are non-negotiable and we plan all things around them. It is an electronics-free time and we spend our time discussing the week ahead. We call our meetings TTM, for Taulman Team Meeting. We start out with the calendar and everybody discusses their week and we write everything down. Then we talk about meals and plan them together as a family, so as to hopefully get everybody's favorites taken care of. Then we talk about whatever needs to be discussed as a family. It's been a really great time for us together.
At the end of the meeting we plan a time for us to all do something fun together during the week. Then we eat dinner together. Sometimes that's the only night of the week we actually eat dinner together.
For our Family Fun Day this week we went to Big Splash. That's not a big deal for me and the kids because we have season passes and go at least once a week. But it was special because Rick went with us.
Here are some highlights ~
This week we are having our annual July 4th family celebration in my childhood town. It's always filled with tons of family memories.
