Okay, so my father-in-law made this awsome shuffleboard game. You take these round wooden discs and slide them down the board and try to get as many as you can in each of the four holes. Each hole is worth one, two, three, or four points. However, if you get one in each, it is worth 20 points, 2 in each is worth 40 points, etc. Anyway, so we were playing last night. The kids were taking turns really nicely and watching each other slide their discs. We didn't really keep score, we just counted how many discs they got in the holes. When it came time for bed, we gave the kids each one last turn, Zachary being last. I guess Zachary didn't fully understand the rules of the game (or else he's playing by Grandma Hoogendoorn's strategy). He seemed to do much better when he made up the rules himself.

Yes, he is picking up each disc and carrying them down to the holes at the end. This made him perfectly happy for 5 minutes. Love that kid!
