Nothing says summer like a morning of swimming and an afternoon playing MarioKart.

We’re not big into video games – it’s not something that they can play without permission and we only have a couple games. I’m pretty sure the kids were shocked when they asked if they could play one afternoon and I said yes. Their chores were done and they were getting along and it was too hot to even swim.

So they all played MarioKart and their dialogue was entertaining. I enjoy watching my kids play MarioKart. Can anyone really play without leaning into the turns or clenching your teeth as you watch the red shell coming towards you? And the victory dances when you win the cup…forget about it. I have several videos of Bennett winning and they’re great – and even better is the dance he did when he thought he won and then the disappointment when he realized otherwise!
