Which Number?

Julia has been assigned homework! I never thought it would happen, but it has in pre-kindergarten. It is pretty simple, though, she only needs to memorize her telephone number. Sounds simple enough until someone mentions they are having their child memorize their moms CELL phone number. Hmmm. James and I never thought of this. Home phone, my cell, James cell? Which one she we have her learn?

After some thought we decided to have her memorize my cell number. What good is it for her to call home in an emergency if we are not there to answer. I hope we made the right choice. Thoughts?

Game Nights

Games are fun! I love them. Laughing is great and competition is good. Every once in a while I get to play non-4-year old games with my peeps. Game nights are so much fun and not to mention they are cheap and unplugged. Simple! My church has family Friday game nights. We have attended a few and they are a blast.

Last weekend, in Big Bear, we had game night 2 nights in a row! Kristi brought Rummikub, which I had never played before. Well, I am hooked. The game is easy to learn, but it involves strategy and is good, clean competition.

I bet you did not know it was invented in 1940s by a Jewish Romanian games inventor.

Game night anyone?
