Does Candy Land, Chutes and Ladders, Slap Jack, and Guess the animal count as educational games??
This is all DS has wanted to do today since we finished schoolwork earlier this morning. It's literally one game after another! I figure if I can count these as educational I should have no problem getting in my four hours a day should we move to TN some day!

Sure! Colors, counting, science... don't know what Slap Jack is but I'm sure there is an educational component to it, too, if one the joy of playing and socializing with mom!

HAHAHAHAHA!! I was alright for the first two games, but after that I was like...oh, alright!! I guess I should be glad he wants to play with me at all!

Plus we count our cards after playing slap jack to see who has the most/to see who is the winner...so surely that's educational, right??

Phew! Well that at least makes me feel better. We did twice the school work today than we normally do because DS just didn't want to stop= then to top it all off, he wanted to play games for literally the rest of the day. I finally had to tell him that mama was really tired and he could play outside if he wanted too. Poor guy. I felt so bad!
