We are not a game family. All those pieces + all my little people = one unhappy mama. But some of our babysitters bring games over and play with the big three after the small boys go to bed. This has been a huge hit, prompting Elbow to request a family game night. Weekly. "You know, to bring the family together," she says. (I'm thinking: when are we ever apart?)
So... it's been game night the past two Sunday evenings after Crockett and The Patriot go to bed. While we have yet to reach "fun" status, our growth in sanctification is off the charts. I'm pretty sure this will end up being both a fun and fruitful evening, but it will take some time.
