On Friday, Big Girl was under the weather. She had a virus and a nasty fever and spent the day at home. Saturday she was a little better but still not feeling great. However, she was feeling good enough to get “cabin fever” from being at home with little to do for two days except watch TV and rest.
So, we broke out the board games on Saturday night and played Scrabble together.
What started out as four separate “teams” turned quickly into two “teams” playing. What was interesting was how hard it was to make words even when we had fourteen letters to use (instead of the usual seven). You would think it would’ve been easier. But, when you have six “A’s” and few consonants, I don’t think it matters much.
We had a good time, though. I was very proud of the girls’ spelling ability and their creativity in coming up with words. SuperMan’s creativity was impressive, too – especially his “creative spelling” on a few words.
I’m looking forward to more game nights this winter.
