"Can we play the story game?"
This is the question I get every night when we sit down to dinner. It involves my seven-year-old, my five-year-old and myself taking turns telling a story line by line. (To be honest, my seven-year-old, Elizabeth, usually tells more than one line, then tries to tell Johnny what to say, too.)
Sometimes we start with a classic tale then take it in a new direction, sometimes they make up their own. Their favorites are when they make themselves and their little sisters the main characters. For some reason Catherine is always getting into trouble, just like in real life. :)
I love that they are using their imaginations. It's always fun to see what they come up with. Maybe tonight we'll tell a story about this girl:
