Give me wisdom and knowledge, that I may lead this people, for who is able to govern this great people of yours?" 2 Chron. 1:10

The Family Show: Girl Scouts Peaks to Piedmont

Image
Girl Scouts are 2.7 million strong—1.9 million girls and 800,000 adults who believe girls can change the world. It began over 100 years ago with one woman, Girl Scouts’ founder Juliette Gordon “Daisy” Low, who believed in the power of every girl. She organized the first Girl Scout troop on March 12, 1912, in Savannah, Georgia, and every year since, they've made her vision a reality, helping girls discover their strengths, passions, and talents. Today they continue the Girl Scout mission of building girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.

They’re the preeminent leadership development organization for girls. And with programs for girls from coast to coast and across the globe, Girl Scouts offers every girl a chance to do something amazing.

Game Review: Spot It

Image
Per Board Game Geek:

Spot it!,, is a simple pattern recognition game in which players try to find an image shown on two cards. Each card in Spot it! features eight different symbols, with the symbols varying in size from one card to the next. Any two cards have exactly one symbol in common. For the basic Spot it! game, reveal one card, then another. Whoever spots the symbol in common on both cards claims the first card, then another card is revealed for players to search, and so on. Whoever has collected the most cards when the 55-card deck runs out wins! Rules for different games – each an observation game with a speed element – are included with Spot it!, with the first player to find a match either gaining or getting rid of a card. Multiple versions of Spot it! have been published, with images in each version ranging from Halloween to hockey to baseball to San Francisco.

Game Review - One Night Ultimate Werewolf

Image
Per Board Game Geek - No moderator, no elimination, ten-minute games. One Night Ultimate Werewolf is a fast game for 3-10 players in which everyone gets a role: One of the dastardly Werewolves, the tricky Troublemaker, the helpful Seer, or one of a dozen different characters, each with a special ability. In the course of a single morning, your village will decide who is a werewolf...because all it takes is lynching one werewolf to win! Because One Night Ultimate Werewolf is so fast, fun, and engaging, you'll want to play it again and again, and no two games are ever the same. This game can be combined with One Night Ultimate Werewolf Daybreak.

In a nutshell, That Family Show is all about...Family. Our desire is to create a fun, safe, and informative web presence that will appeal to kids of all ages. Each week beginning Jan 13th we will have a 20-30 min webisode featuring our community, interviews, reviews, how to's, music, art, games, and lots more. This endeavor has been created and launched by two dads (myself and Nathan) who wanted a website their kids could enjoy but also would serve as a tremendous resource to parents, teachers, grandparents, babysitters, and anyone else that has or works with kids.
