An ordinary and extraordinary moment...
Notes: Lord of The Rings Risk, a wedding gift, came out of our storage pod and it has been out most days since. Jonah is loving the Lord of the Rings books and often has the gameboard (which is a map) out and moves the figures as he reads. Such wonderful play! And, days like today, I find myself playing the evil forces in an all-day-long game of Risk (with many, many interruptions)... and its not over yet.
And cuisenaire rods are also a hot item these days. The boys spend lots of time patterning, building forts for risk figures and using them with some great rod math books we were given.
