family home evening suggestions

Home Evening Suggestions (found in a box that fallen behind the TV years ago) Apparently, as the kids were getting older, we were getting bored with our standard issue Family Home Evenings. There were slips of paper with ideas listed. I suppose we were going to draw out an activity idea if we were drawing a blank for the week.  From the handwriting, it looks like Brady had already moved away from home at this point, so these are the ideas of  Dave and the girls. Apparently someone (ahem, . . . Melanie) didn't understand the budget / time issue we were willing to invest on a Monday evening activity.

Get a beach house for a weekend and learn to surf

Learn a song on our own instruments and play them together, for example Guitar, Clarinet, Trumpet, Drums, Piano
