We're All Connected "Would You Rather?" Web Game & List of Ideas

I'm helping to run the "Activity Days" program for the girls (aged 8-11) in our congregation at church. We run activity nights twice a month. Our first activity was full of get-to-know you games and I thought I'd share them with you because they would make fun ice-breakers or party games for tween girls!

Today's game is a creative twist on "Would You Rather" that shows how we're all connected! I saw a game like this online (I wish I had a link to share with you, but I've lost it) and thought it would be a fun one to re-create.

Here's how you play and what you need to create this game at  home:

Ken's PhD Convocation

Earlier this month, we took the girls out of school for something very special. We thought it was important for them to be able to be there at Ken's convocation where he would receive the PhD that he has worked so long and hard for!

I still find it difficult to put my thoughts and feelings about this accomplishment into words. This PhD was hard on us, particularly during the last few years of it. I'm so glad to be on this end of it and so proud of Ken for sticking to it and accomplishing this!

Behind-the-Scenes of a Family Photoshoot

Yesterday evening, we did a little photoshoot at our house. I wanted to get some photos of our family in our new matching Christmas pajamas from Lazy One for my Family Gift Guide. It ended up being such a fun night and I really liked some of the photos we came away with so I wanted to share them here.

I should've taken some photos of what was going on behind-the-scenes too! I may have to do that next time we do something like this because some of these photos almost look like something out of a catalogue, but what's behind the camera might be a little comical at times!
