Our ‘Words with Friends’ on the 20th was definitely our most high-energy afternoon so far—we normally have six to eight girls come join us on Monday afternoons. This afternoon, we had twenty-five fifth to seventh grade boys. It was definitely a change from our normal afternoon, but it was also a lot of fun!
We didn’t quite have enough Scrabble games for everyone to play, so we set up stations for each of the boys to participate in. One of these stations had a pretty competitive game of Scrabble. Another had the fall worksheets that we had worked on with our regular attendees a few weeks earlier, and in the last station we played a spelling game. Every so often, we had the guys switch stations so that everyone was able to experience each of the games. All too soon, our hour was up, and it was time for the guys to go. Even though everyone who came this week was new, hopefully we’ll see them again in the next few weeks!
