Our dinner game

A few days ago, when our kiddos were in a great big hurry to eat dinner and go play, my hubby suggested that
we play "Best and Worst."
He wanted a little more table time fellowship with them and this game makes that happen.

We hadn't played it in a long time! I can't even remember where we first heard about this game but its fun.

What you do is take turns going around the table telling what the
"worst thing" was that happened to you that day and then what the "best thing" was that happened to you.

You'd think that since we home school and see each other all day, that this game would be totally boring but it isn't. ; )

I enjoy the window it gives me into each person's heart and how they perceive things.

I think the kids enjoy their turn in the spotlight.

I know that we all enjoy getting a deeper look into Dad's day! His "best thing" is usually coming home to us, which is really sweet. Or sharing the Lord with someone at work, which we may not have heard about had we not been playing this. : )
