Slinging her arm around...

When she's not elevating and icing her elbow, the girl just slings her arm around like nobody's business. She got a little bummed this morning when she couldn't figure out the system for getting her shirt on without straigtening her elbow...but we figured it out and she's good to go.

We went to Wal-Mart to buy some games to help break the monotony because she's not convinced she can color. And my offers of school work are met with scowls. So we are now the proud owners of Uno and Connect Four.

I think I'm going to have to visit Callapidder Days for Katrina's Game Reviews. We like games around here, really. We're just learning and growing. Sometimes I expect my kids to be further along than they are...gotta watch that.

It's funny, G is really good a memory type games. Mini-Me is good at logic games. She can beat me at checkers if she really puts her mind to it. However, she really doesn't like to loose.

How I got from Arm slinging to gaming, I'm not entirely sure.

I am so glad the sling is red. That is the best color for anything like that, IMHO.

Wondering... is your Mini-Me good at games like concentration? She and my Miss Dog Lover have a lot in common... Miss DL is highly visual and whoops anyone at things like Concentration.

Connect Four and Uno are great! She will have a blast playing these until she wears everyone out! *smile* Well, that's how it goes around here, anyway.
Blessings!

Glad all is well! Praying for good news tomorrow. :)

Arm slinging sounds more like a sport than a game. LOL

The red looks good. For a sling that is...

I have found some GREAT card games at Barnes & Noble. A family favorite and one that doesn't require reading skills is HISSSS! It works on color matching skills and my olders love to teach the youngers how to play. We also like Cuckoo Zoo...it has lots of crazy rules, but the four year olds have picked it up well. B&N has card holders for little hands and they can play many things by themselves. There is also a card game called Garbage that is for anyone who can count to ten...let me know if you would like the rules...us adults even play that one when the kids go to bed. Dutch Blitz is a fun game for older kids and adults...ooh or there's I Don't Think So (a.k.a. B.S.---we had to make it okay for the kids).

I will pray for a successful trip to the doctor tomorrow.

Blessing to you and your family.

Glad to hear she had a better day. Our family loves to play the "cranium" games. They provide hours of entertainment on family game night. Happy game playing.

She sure is cute!

Connect Four is a staple in our house. The kids love to play it and it works for all ages!

Happy gaming to your gal!
