Managing the schedule i s an impor tant par t of mak ing i t a l l work . We spend fun t ime together wi th games or mov ie nights . Our favor i te fami ly game i s probably Clue. Alex i a, our 16-year-old daughter , has f ina l ly beat Dad and I 'm sure she would say that makes her pret ty speci a l . We spend a s igni f icant amount of t ime get t ing k ids to/ f rom school , dance, work . . . not to ment ion our own jobs as wel l .
