8/7: My wife and our newest baby were out and about today, and I rounded up the other 5 kiddos to introduce them to a game of S'quarrels. In itself, not necessarily an act of kindness, but halfway through our game . . . I'm squatting on the floor . . . cross-legged and a bit cramped in my 6'2" frame . . . when our 4-yr-old climbs into my lap to get closer to the action. We were playing "together" as a team, and he wanted to be able to reach the draw pile easier AND sit on dad's lap too. Yeah, my legs were falling asleep and I really wanted to stretch out, but he's a snuggler, and I didn't want to miss the opportunity. So, there we sat, son with uncomfortable (but not complaining) Dad for a good 30 minutes. It was pretty sweet. And to top off the afternoon's experience . . . we won!

Okay, so I brain-farted after this posting and totally forgot to keep track of things or subscribe to this thread to be reminded. I'll attempt to re-engage myself and start another week.

Day One (8/20): Long day, tired, and was asked LAST MINUTE to help create some "games" for a friend's birthday party. Yes, so AS I ARRIVE at said party, I'm approached with, "Any thoughts?". Well, a few moments later and we had a simple "Guess their favorite...". It wasn't much, but I was spent and really just wanted to check out for the day. But, friends are friends, and we go the extra mile and make the extra effort BECAUSE we are friends. So, we all played, I didn't win anything, but everyone had fun!

Day Two (8/21): At my wife's request, we went for a walk with all 6 kids in tow: 4 on bikes, 1 in a wagon, the baby in a stroller. Yes, it was quite the parade, but lots of fun, and the first time we've done that in FOREVER! Yes, it needs to become a regular thing for us on those precious evenings when we actually don't have something else going on. I'd rather chill at home, play some board games or watch a movie together after a busy day of work, but this is good too - and they LOVED it.

Day Three (8/22): I roasted some DECAF coffee beans for my wife today. I rarely drink decaf, but she does half-caff a lot and was out of the decaf half of her half-caff (sounds like a Starbucks order, huh?) So, a batch lovingly roasted for her, taking into consideration her comments on the last roast of these particular beans and aiming for something more to her liking this time around. I hope I succeeded!

Day Four (8/23): Took my son out for a quick father-son lunch all spur-of-the-moment. He's a blast to hang out with and we had a nice treat that usually doesn't get to happen in the middle of the day.

Day Five (8/24): As a youth pastor, Wednesdays are by far my busiest days. And today was EXTRA busy because I got started late after staying up until 3am the night before. But my kiddos were EAGERLY awaiting my "Go ahead" to open up a massive lot of Star Wars Attacktix figures I'd purchased on eBay. I let them, and they were super excited...TOO excited...they didn't even know what to do with their excitement. So, I paused everything else, sat down with them and played through a game with everybody. It was lots of fun, delayed my day by another 30-45 minutes, but was time well spent.

Day Six (8/25): Spoiled our babysitter (again) by overpaying her. It's always fun to talk things over with my wife, reach a number in my head that I think would not just be adequate but would go above-and-beyond to bless her for taking such good care of our kids, and then compare notes to find out that my amount was nearly DOUBLE what my wife had in mind. I win! We got to spoil her and it was fun!

Day Seven (8/26): Our pastor's wife is having a birthday this weekend, and my wife had suggested that I roast her some decaf coffee beans as a special treat, something more flavorful than her typical k-cup brew. So, in the midst of an insanely busy day trying to tie up loose ends before leaving tomorrow on vacation, I took time to roast some coffee beans . . . and then found out that my wife had already presented her with birthday gifts. Oh well, we have LOTS of decaf to take with us on vacation! (Besides, there's always next time, or some other random just-because-reason, right?)

Being a parent is it's own supply of comedy gold. Sometimes things are clearly funny, other times we laugh just to not cry.

What is one of your funniest memories of/with/involving your kids?

Fanny and Alexander


The Plot: Two children (Bertil Guve and Pernilla Allwin) find their warm and opulent family life destroyed when their father (Jarl Kulle) dies and their mother (Ewa Fröling) marries a stern Lutheran bishop (Jan Malmsjö). Strangely enough, Fanny plays almost no role in the plot.

Back in 1982: It was perhaps the most widely anticipated art film of all time. Ingmar Bergman, a giant of cinema, had announced retirement. He had returned to Sweden after a brief self-imposed exile to make a five hour film. The long version was shown on Swedish television. The shorter one saw an international release in 1983. If you loved Bergman then you loved Fanny and Alexander. It was, as one critic put it "an anthology of personal reference points, designed as an auto-critique analyzing his repertoire of artistic tricks." It also drew from most of his major films, including a particularly creepy reference to Persona. The film had just about everything you would expect: God, ghosts, magic, sex, death, family, despair, and a sudden ending. Bergman himself said it was “the sum total of my life as a filmmaker.” If you hated Bergamn, then a parade of his style, ideas, and preoccupations, was like a death sentence, even if the film was unusual for Bergamn due to its cheery atmosphere, long running time, fart jokes, and obsession with childhood. Yet this was the end of the road for a particular kind of style, made popular in the 1950s, and fading out as the culture transformed. Bergamn chose the best time to bow out.

30 Years Later: Fanny and Alexander was technically not his last film: there was Saraband is a 2003, closing a career that began with Crisis in 1946. Yet his later work was more theater centered and the films were austere and made for television. Fanny and Alexander was the last film made with fanfare. Among critics and directors it remains a favorite. When Sight and Sound, the British film magazine, asked the world's directors and critics to select the best films of the last 25 years it won third place. This was natural. The film is about the triumph of imagination, which is the sort of myth that artists eat up (the most insidious being the quest for the timeless work of art). In that way the film speaks to the artists and critics because it was deftly made, celebrates their virtues and vices, and is self-congratulatory. I admit though that even I fell under its spell. Few films combined magic with an attention to detail and depth, a lesson lost on Tim Burton/Baz Luhrmann in our vapid era of eye candy. The film is deftly acted. Most of all it is saved by Bishop Edvard, one of the greatest villains in film history. He is a cruel and tragic man, both tortured and a torturer, wise and yet a complete fool. He represents what is best in Bergman films, that complexity of humanity, for there are no cheap villains here. Every character does something we admire and something we despise. Edvard, by demanding both fear and compassion, offers no easy answers. To me he is the ultimate Bergman character best represented in his last two scenes. In one brief segment we see his pain. In the last we see the pain he inflicts, leaving us with him standing in the shadows declaring "You will never be rid of me."

79 cents. This one was missing 3 pawns, but I was lucky to have replacements in my parts box, as University Games seems always to have the same ones in all their board games. Now it's just missing a few cards, but it's still playable. This is really a very fun game for the preschool set.

I ain't goin' in a burning house for a game. Period. I'll go in for the kids or my wife, but that's it. Nothing else. No pets (not that we'd ever have any). No albums. No books. No "valuables" because there's nothing more valuable than my (and my family's) safety.

Fire, bad.

Age 3.9 - Boy (Toby)

-Kids On Stage
-Funny Face
-Hedbanz for Kids

He likes these three games because they're fairly active. I don't think he likes to sit around the gameboard, quiet and orderly. He'll tolerate games his big sister likes (see later), but he prefers action.

-Corduroy's Birthday Games

He doesn't get to play this one much (it's for birthday parties mostly, after all). But he does enjoy it. It's nothing more than organized movement, so I'm not surprised that it works for a three-year-old.

-Blokus

This one is odd. Pure abstract. No running around. But he enjoys it. And when playing the 2-player version, he often beats me.

-Early Years

He really liked the animal train and storytelling game that comes in this multi-game set. I think he's fading on the train and will enjoy the story game more next time we play it.

Kids in the Hall

This had to be one of the best series ever! It ran through my high school years, and I did the whole commercial cut with this one (along with ST:TNG). And not an hour ago, I bought the first and second seasons off of eBay for under $20. People here don't know what they're missing letting it go for so cheap!

I remember how excited I was to find a game in my collection that wasn't on BGG, and was also one that I thought was actually a good game for certain age groups.

Nice charades game for the pre-reading set. I'd say this is good for kids up to 8.

There are also a lot of users which put a picture of their kids or nephews etc. as their avatar.
But has it a chance to become the most popular one?
