Today I am grateful for Friday evenings. Our 3 kids are out of high school and in college right now (one will graduate this spring from NCSU). This frees up so much of our time that was before spent doing school related functions with our kids. Those were really wonderful times and I wouldn't trade them for anything - but - I'm liking this freedom of time we have now also. We try to do something fun on Friday evenings before the weekend chores set it. So far - so good!
