Geeking Out

HGive us a rainy weekend, 

And we'll give you two little game fanatics.  

On Saturday we played a bit of chess.  Addie had learned in school this year and has practiced a few times with various family members.  I had only played once before, and Lily never had.  Adam and Addie played a game first, then "coached" Lily and I. It was three heads against one as they conspired to see how badly Momma could play.  I think I need a lot more practice.  

At least I have Risk.  Well, I do if the dice roll my way.  

We started a Risk game and have played after supper the last two nights.  The girls are fanatical about playing.  To the point that they'll willingly get jammies on before playing.  We're working on teaching them strategy and thinking several moves ahead.  

At least that's my strategy.  

Besides, if they continue playing they will make very smart friends in college.

Addie has my favorite jammies on! I still love those ones! Crazy she has to have the fleece jammers out in July though! Love and miss you all!
