Joffre had the kids play a "game" at the dinner table a few weeks ago. He asked them a series of questions starting with.."What's your favorite...?" It was a huge hit and the ask him to ask them their favorite things all the time now.
The kids took the initiative and now ask each other questions at the table. Today I walked in and heard George say, "What's your favorite vegetable?". The kids' rapidly fired answers where, "cucumbers", "cucumbers", "cucumbers" and "um...peanut butter and jelly sandwiches". There is always one in a crowd. ( actually there is just a 3 year old.)
