Earlier this week Steve had our family play a game of Monopoly together. Half-way through the game he paused and had the kids think through financial planning by using examples from the game and we talked about ways that we could improve on our family budget together. The older three kids listened well and actively participated in the conversation, but Adam got the wiggles and spent more time playing with game pieces than he appeared to be listening.
When we resumed the game after the discussion, however, Adam dramatically passed his hands over the property cards that he had collected and solemnly said, "THIS is my future!"
Guess he was listening after all!
