Levi and I had about 24 hours just the two of us with no car to use and crazy hotness outside. We spend most of the holed up in the master bedroom (because it has an a/c).
Besides sleeping (a good 9 hrs. worth for the kiddo), we played games. LOTS of games. An extended version of Settlers of Catan on Friday night before watching a couple Magic School Bus episodes. Then in the morning, Levi learned to play Mancala (about 10 games worth) and after a game of Chess. We finished it of with a couple games of 10 Days in Africa. Love that my Levi loves playing games with me.
What games do you enjoy playing with your 8-10 year olds? We're always on the lookout for more fun games!
