Safety first

Yesterday Jake was under the weather so he stayed home with me.  When he stays home we play board games and truthfully I had forgotten that we had this game.It’s called ‘The Guardians’ and it teaches all about safety in a non-threatening way.  The object is to get your person from school to home by answering safety questions along the way.  If your child is reading they can read the question to you.  Answer the question correctly and you get to move ahead several spaces.  Some examples are:  What is your phone number with the area code, the living room curtains are on fire what should you do(4 choices to choose from), a stranger tells you someone you know is hurt and to come with them quickly (what should you do), should you eat the pretty red berries growing on a bush near your house?  Great questions and frankly things that we need to review often with our kids.I love the fact that it is low tech and takes only 10-15 minutes to play.  Later that night I played with Sam.  If you want your very own game you can find it on eBay.

Looking forward to:Friday night lights…

If you live in Cincinnati come see April, Jake and Sam perform with their A-Marika dance class from 1-2 p.m. on Saturday at the Glendale Street Fair.

A company picnic at Coney Island…

Really, really looking forward to an unexpected visit from big brother Derek…the tall dude dead center of this photo.

A very fine week-end line-up indeed!
