Making me smile...

Recently, we had a "family game night" with our kids. We do not do this enough. We all usually really enjoy it, and it is a good bonding time. On this particular night, we played Yahtzee, which is a game that we haven't played too often.

 My youngest daughter, age 3 1/2 wanted to "play" too, but we couldn't very well have her score her own paper. I gave her one score page, which she wrote on with her pencil. After a few minutes, she still wanted to play. I gave her one die to roll for me, and she liked that.
 Our six-year-old needed some help too, and she was on a team with Daddy. She did great writing her numbers and trying to keep score.

 Bethy keeping "score" on her own score sheet...
 Rolling with gusto!
 YAHTZEE!! She helped Mommy roll one! YEA!
These pictures make me smile. I know before too long she will be scoring and writing her own numbers, but for now I am glad she can be on my team and share in the excitement of a good roll with me. I think we got some good game-players growing up in our house! That is a good thing, since we love to play games!

Writing prompt #5- Tell about something that made you smile this week.

Deuteronomy 11:18-21

18 Fix these words of mine in your hearts and minds; tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. 19 Teach them to your children, talking about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. 20 Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates, 21 so that your days and the days of your children may be many in the land the Lord swore to give your ancestors, as many as the days that the heavens are above the earth.
