(please excuse the mess; it happens;)
on new years eve, katherine & co. were bored...
i jokingly told her to get out some old games for them
so, the four sat down at the dining room table.
first, they played pictionary then pass the pigs.
they actually played for a couple of hours:)
now, you know from earlier posts that katherine has
several gaming systems, all the new games
for which she has asked, as welll as gadgets (ie rock band, the sims,
the old/new guitar heroes... not to mention a new laptop, ipod,
a new tv, a new cell phone, and every hand held gaming
unit made since she was about 6. (by the way, i do not
mean to sound boastful here; (she has accrued these items
over years and years of birthdays and Christmases.
further, she, like her mother, just never rids herself of anything;/)
i'm just trying to convey that they should NOT have been bored!!!)
since the beginning of the year, i have been pleasantly
surprised to find katherine & company sitting in the floor
playing other old games like mancala and connect four.
john and i went out to dinner with some friends last night
to celebrate st. patrick's day. later, katherine called
to ask if it was alright for chico to come over while we were
at dinner. i told her it was fine, but they better behave, ha!!!
not long after receiving her call, we finished our dinner
and returned home.
when we came in the door, we found katherine and chico
sitting in the middle of the den floor playing mancala
with the connect four game awaiting its turn to be played.
i don't know about you; but my heart sings...
when i see joy stemming from low-tech enjoyment
in high-tech days such as these:D
love and GOD's blessings,
ps. do your children/grandchildren play board games???
what were your favorites when you were young???
mine??? i loved chinese checkers, clue,
monopoly (though i never finished a game),
tip-it, the dating game, mousetrap, checkers,
etc... heck, i think i may have loved them all:)
oh, and lastly, i wanted to share this...
