Game Day

No, I'm not talking about football. Today during quiet time Cavett and I played games. We played two that came out of his Click magazine and then we looked for Chutes and Ladders. Unfortunately, it was missing still yet to be found. Instead, we pulled out the cards.

We tried Uno first. Besdies trying to play with just 2 people, it went fairly well. He quickly caught on to how to match either color or number. As for the action cards, well, we kind of ignored them. Next, we tried Go Fish. This was a bit more of a challenge, but again he caught on. Luckily, several years ago we received a huge box of stuff from Aunt Lynn in Chicago. In it were card holders for kids. I held on to them thinking they may come in handy. Very ingeneous--they work like a charm and Cavett even came up with his own way to hold them.

This evening after Kendrick went to bed, we played with Daddy. It is so much more fun to play with 3 people instead. I look forward to more game nights with my boys. This is what I have really been looking forward to! Stephen even commented on how I have gotten over "winning at all costs." Thanks, honey.

How fun! I'm impressed that Cavett has the attention span for a card game. I love the use of feet for card holding -I'll have to try that at our next game night.
