What to muse about today?

Mees first


Then Teagan!

Today it was too hot. We stayed inside, in the air conditioning. After morning naps, which were a bit delayed thanks to a super late firework night last night and both girls sleping until at least 7am, we played games. We started Sturdy Birdy before Ashlin woke up, but Teagan decided she didn’t want to play after her second turn. Once Ashlin was up, the four of us played Candyland.

Ashlin was so excited to play, and she got to go first too!  She didn’t quite get how the card selection becomes movement of piece, nor about player order.  But she loved that she was first, and she was great at identifying the colors and the number of squares to go.   It must have been beginners luck that had her win in three turns.   We then put her in charge of the discard pile too, which made her feel super important.

Not a bad first gaming experience for her…

    Woohoo, Ashlin!! Great game! Glad the girls enjoy playing games that do not involve TV/Xbox things. It’s a shame that more kids don’t play games like that anymore. And probably a good thing to stay in with the ‘burn’ to cool off. ;-)

      Yeah, we need to get her acclimated to gaming – it would be nice to have a family game time, once they can play more challenging games than chutes and ladders and candyland.
