Qwirkle is a game that I had seen in catalogs before, but I'd never gone ahead and bought it. It was on clearance at Walmart after Christmas. (I love to go after Christmas and get stuff on sale that we can all play or for upcoming birthdays!) We played it for the first time tonight. Brent, Jose, Dayton, and I all sat in the floor and figured it out. It is NOT EASY! It was a lot of fun though! We didn't keep score the way it says to, because we were too busy just figuring it out. Brent asked at the very beginning if we could just make up our own rules, because it was too hard. lol (He was not homeschooled! Our boys are homeschooled and they were up for the challenge. haha)
Today we just played the game and the first one to use all the tiles up was the winner. Jose won, Dayton came in second, I was in third, and Brent was
I love these kinds of days with my kiddos! We even had time to watch "Tangled" (I can't even watch that movie without thinking of a beautiful little girl named Mia Kareen that came home from Ukraine this year through Reece's Rainbow!). I love that even my boys love that movie! (Denzell was watching football in the other room though!) We managed to watch that while the ham was baking in the oven. A few flurries even flew around outside. The fireplace was on.
God is so good! I can't wait until He bring my next 5 blessings home!!
