I think Sunday is my favorite day. Time to reflect spiritually, to rest, enjoy home life with all of us together – our girls, our loves. The day seems to go by a bit slower than other days…. we wake up slower, take more time to listen to each other – there are no deadlines, no lessons, few parties or events. We make a big dinner, stay close to home and just enjoy life.
It’s also time when the girls can really spend uninterrupted time together – all day long… playing, hiking, exploring, crafting (and even a little bit of bickering).
Which is exactly what happened today when they had been playing HARD and long together for hours… so after a few tears were wiped up, I pulled out a new cooperative game for them to try out.
For those of you are are unfamiliar with cooperative games, I highly recommend them. The emphasis is not placed on winning or defeating the opponent but on creative thinking, team work, sharing and collaboration. Cooperative games encourage children to work with other players toward a final goal that they earn together.
