Taking to activities (Finn and Sam are outgoing and love playing hockey, golf, soccer and swimming, so usually in one sport at a time/seasonal.) Keeping up with their laundry, some light housekeeping (they have a housekeeper, but tidying up and doing some of the daily stuff) running errands, and cooking for the boys. They are great employers and very personal. Totally devoted to the family, so they try to give a 110% to each of their businesses, then be able to focus on family time when 6 pm rolls around and have a couple of hours of quality time together.
