I mentioned in this post that Grandpa Phil likes to play games.
Well, he really likes to play games. Which means he really gets along famously with our kiddos.
I snapped these pics of the "spoons" game one morning just a little after 7 a.m. When I came out of my room, these five were already piled up together in Grandpa Phil's room (formerly known as "The Girls' Room") in the midst of a rousing spoons tournament.
And our children have now been introduced to "Master Mind" also.
|Mastermind was one of my favorite games growing up.|
But it hasn't all been "fun and games." Ok, it has still been fun...but some of it has been "fun and work."
Grandpa Phil helped daddy finish the soccer goals that he had begun putting together. We have now spent hours playing soccer in the back yard.
Some little things, and some bigger things. Everything from installing a blind...
...and moving the new-to-us bookshelf into the girls' room.
And when I say we've been eating "differently" I mean lots of bacon and sausage...and potato chips. As you might imagine, this has been a big hit with the kids.
Phil is scheduled to fly out tomorrow afternoon. I've told him (and his wife Robin, via FB) that we actually aren't letting him leave tomorrow.
They think I'm joking. But the joke is on them...
