Boys Will Be Boys!

I'm sure you've noticed I haven't been posting much lately. I've been focusing on family and holiday plans coming up but I'm ready to start getting back to the blogging world. Hopefully I'll keep it up. :oP
Again, thank you to everyone who has commented the last few weeks. I'm sorry I haven't been visiting you all as usual but I will try and visit as many of you as I can very soon. :o)

So my "boys" dug out the military strategy board game Risk a couple of weekends ago and Honey has been teaching Mr. Smarty Pants how to play. Our little "soldier" is obessed with anything military right now, especially the Army! He wears anything with camouflage, wants camouflage bedding, games, toys, etc for Christmas, is going to be an Army man for Halloween and plays military strategy games on his computer. And yes, he is only 6! He's very smart, hence the nickname, and can play PC games that Honey plays. They play Starcraft together too(a space war strategy game). It boggles my mind, since he couldn't really read too well when he first started playing these, that he knows about everything in the game, including things Honey didn't know even though he's played the game for years!

So anyway, getting back to Risk, I took a few shots the first time they played and thought I'd share.



I was lucky enough to find a vintage world globe for Mr. Smarty Pants at Goodwill a week ago. I went to drop off things we were donating but decided to take a peek and see if I could find any fun treasures. To my surprise this awesome globe was tagged at only $4! The base was loose but that was so easy to tighten. I think it might be from the 70's? Anyone know? Mr. Smarty Pants has been wanting one ever since falling in love with Pawpaw's antique globe so I just had to pick it up for him. What do you think?

I have never played risk. I want a globe like that so bad. I keep watching thrift stores in hopes.

That globe looks like the one I have from my father. I don't know how old it is but I got it when he passed away and that was twenty years ago. Everyone in the family loves that globe. My daughter-in-law spent an entire evening finding things on it when she was here visiting last and bought herself a globe at Target on the way home. (Dang, I was going to surprise her with one for Christmas)

Risk - my boys ADORE that game. 'Specially my youngest. I don't like playing it but he played it all the time with his father, adult brothers when they were home, and his buddies. He homeschooled and I swear he learned all his world geography from playing that game. It's not like I taught it to him! LOL.
