Noah loves games and, like his dad, tends toward games that involve strategy – chess, checkers, Stratego, etc. He is the only kid who hangs in til the end in monopoly (usually because he’s winning).
This week he discovered the Risk game we had and begged Mark to play with him. They started yesterday and today after we got home he gave up snack time to get right back to the game.
Love the look of pure concentration. Like he can WILL the dice to roll a certain number.
Like a typical Gumm male he tends to try to bend the rules, or just downright invent new ones. (Notice dad’s got the rule book in his hands.)
Gotta think hard before that next move.
That’s just me being artsy with the camera.
I have to admit that it’s fun to have the kids at an age where they can play something other than Chutes & Ladders and Candyland!
