Tonight was game night. Usually for game night we have something simple like soup for dinner, but at Joshua's request, I made "BFD" (breakfast for dinner). All the kids love breakfast foods and it is so nice to make something that I know they will all eat. I really have it lucky because none of them are picky eaters, but there is something about eating breakfast at night that really excites them and makes dinner time fun.
While the biscuits were in the oven, I directed a game of Chutes and Ladders. I played the first game with the kids, then left Joshua and Megan to play it again on their own while I worked on dinner 5 feet away from them. Daniel lost interest once he saw me cutting up some fresh fruit. He decided he would rather sit up at the bar and beg for food.
So Keith rescued me from the whining and helped Daniel to play games with the big kids. Daniel looks less than happy. Everyone has to wait while Megan inspects the cards to Candy Land to be certain that the Queen Frostine card has not been lost.
Joshua was pretty proud of himself. He won both Chutes and Ladders and Candy Land. As the winner, he gets to pick the two games for next week's game night.
