it is the time of year where it is getting dark earlier... We seem to do chorin', eat supper and then have family time at a much earlier time than summer of course. Seriously, we may even be in bed by 9:30 pm! You know the gist, "early to bed, early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise!" Well, lets just say we've got the healthy part covered, we are on the road to the wisdom part and well, that is all... I think it would have been better said "makes one healthy, happy and wise"... We definitely have the happy part covered and thats really all that matters isn't it? What are you doin' tonight? Be sure to check back here tomorrow to see the Gentle Giant in Horseopoly action!

off-grid games tonight
Excuse the strange lighting in the photos... You must remember that we live without electricity :)... Here we are playing Horseopoly of course (what else would a farm family play? LOL)... We had tons of fun and it actually gets quite competitive. I like games to relax, the Gentle Giant likes to WIN and strategize and then it seems not so gamey anymore for me but the children LOVE it. They team up together to win as well and it usually ends up in loud laughing and yelling and tons of fun! perfects all math skills and reading and more. The children don't even realize they are learning, not that they would mind anyway...
