All Fun & Board Games

Our family has been digging deep into board games the last few months.  It's comforting to regularly dive into our cupboard full of games we've acquired over the decades.  We've been starting our slower days with games before and after breakfast.  What wonderful skills we are learning and sharing while playing together: focus, strategy, numbers, sequencing, and more.  Hannah taught Liam to play chess, he taught me how to play, and now we play several times each week.  Playing chess has become an incentive for him to finish his chores in a timely manner.  We play games with whoever will join us.  We are even planning a family game night with friends.
