I bought a new board game today, and our family played it together this evening.
The name of the game is Pictureka. Basically it was one of those hide and seek games. Much like the I See it computer games. It was a board with lots of jumbled up pictures and we had to be the quickest to find it. Or find a certain number in 30 seconds. It was a fun game that all 4 of us and our neighbor played. I am proud to say that I was the winner! Yes, I beat my children and I was happy about it. Just barely though. I had 18 points, Forrest had 17 points, Nathan had 15 points, Harvey had 14 points, and our poor neighbor went home with 11 lonely points. The kids were fantastic at this game. It is amazing how sharp they are. We really thought that they were going to win, and Harvey kept telling me, "This is what you get for picking out a game they can play." It's interesting. I have learned something very important about my family. We are all very competitive. EXTREMELY competitive. I knew Harvey and I were competitive with each other, but our kids were super aggressive at this game. It was like watching mini Cecile and Harvey's playing across the table. I loved it. I am so glad I got the game, it is definitely something we will play again.
