Little game players

Jacob and Claire have recently become obsessed with playing games.  It has become a Sunday tradition to play a game after church with daddy while the babies sleep.  Over the past few weeks, they've tried quite a few new games.

They also have involved Kaylee in their games.  They've played games like Uno and Bonanza in the back yard with her.

When John and Vicki came to visit, they played The Reef.

Jared has tried teaching them increasingly complex games, and they seem to catch onto the rules.  Some of their favorites are Ticket to Ride, Scotland Yard, Dominion, and Settlers of Catan.  Jacob won on his first try with Dominion and Settlers, so he's pretty excited about learning new games.

It is interesting to watch how Jacob and Claire do games involving trading.  Jacob is definitely in charge, but they both are very generous in trying to help the other person through their trades.

We're raising some pretty competitive board gamers!
