When our children were growing up, we purposefully did not make any plans to be out on Saturday evenings. The exception to that would be to attend a gospel meeting. We made sure clothes were ready, kids bathed and in bed at a decent time, and if I was teaching, all my class stuff assembled and ready to load in the car.
Even now we generally do not make plans for Saturday evenings (it’s not wise to be out after dark here any night of the week anyway, although we have to be from time to time). My Saturday preparations for the Lord’s Day are to iron clothes and have food on hand for Sunday. If we have a long drive we’ll bring lunch in the cooler, to eat on the way home. No fast food here. 🙂
