Last night, there was something bothering me. I went upstairs to be alone. And started stewing about it. Then a kid followed me up to my room. So, I wasn’t alone and I wasn’t making my situation better by focussing on it. For once, I made a good decision, and headed downstairs to play a board game with the girls–Bible Trivia for Young Readers.
I figured I was a shoo-in to win. I mean, I have been going to church for 37 years, I went to Christian Schools for a few years, and I graduated from a Christian College. This should be a walk in the park… 😉
Caitlyn was a little upset when she got one wrong 🙂
Sue had a couple questions give her a challenge.
And Patrice actually beat us all by one point!
In my, overly educated defense…the game was set up with a little bit of a twist. For every time you got a question right, you drew a little card that had a random number of stars and that was your score for each question. So, I might get a question right and only get one point, while Patrice might get a question right and get 3 stars…and at the end you added up the number of stars you had, not the number of questions you got right…so before you doubt my years of education, I did actually get more right than the girls did, but I had less stars on my cards.
Don’t you feel sad for me?
Either because I lost to my 6 year old by one point or that I am pathetic enough to explain to you how and why I lost…Survive til you Thrive!
