Being a mom is the hardest thing I've ever done, but it has brought me so much joy! I want to encourage other moms on their journey, I'll share motherhood tricks, spotlight tips I've learned from friends, and I hope you will share your ideas. I will focus on secrets that help families stay balanced, healthy, frugal, creative, and closely knit. I will also share favorite fiction and nonfiction books that I have enjoyed. Many blessings to you on your mothering journey!

Newest Family Board Game - Catan

Have you seen the board game "Settlers of Catan"?  Our friends Nathan and Rachel introduced us to it, and my kids are hooked.  We borrowed it from them for two months this fall, 'til Gramma and Papa gave it to them for Christmas.  It's a strategy game for older kids and adults.   If your kids like strategy  and they have a good attention span, you should check out this game.  Beware - you might get hooked!

Do you have other favorite games for kids ages 10-15?

We haven't tried Catan yet, but may have to give it a try!

We love to play games with family, especially Balderdash and Pictionary for special occasions. We also have ongoing Scrabbles matches.

Thanks for sharing ladies! I've never heard of Munchkin - I'll have to check it out. I just looked at our Cashflow game last week, and wondered when it would be appropriate to teach our kids. I haven't played Balderdash in years, but we should definitely pull that out! ann :)
