Simply Grand Game

It's a cloudy, cool, spring, Monday.

A good day to grab one of the educational games I had purchased for a day like today.

All the boys had a great time playing Presto Change-O.

The 2-4 players learn how to make change, save money and spend it wisely. Players travel around a game board filled with everyday financial decisions as they earn money, sell lemonade, spend money at the museum or movies, and much more. The first player to save $10.00 wins! For 2-4 players. Ages 8 and up.


It seems we spend all of our school time trying to cover the basics but it's fun to "change it up" a bit and add an educational game every once and awhile.

Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider Him who endured such opposition from sinful men, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart (Hebrews 12:1-3, NIV).

I'm trying to not grow weary as we finish up our last month of school. 

We're beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel.

Let's finish strong boys!

Happy Monday!

  2. Heather,
    Your photo collages are beautiful! Thanks for the review of this would be a great addition to our game closet and help us deal with those warm weather wiggles a bit more.
