School is back in session! While it’s nice to have a routine again, it’s hard being so busy with homework, after-school sports and playdates — let alone all the grown-up responsibilities on your to-do list. No matter how busy you get, don’t forget to make time for the family. Try a new sport like fowling or plan a picnic on a Wednesday night. It doesn’t have to take a lot of time or money to have fun. If you need more ideas, LittleGuide Detroit has plenty to get you through the fall!
