Tonight each kid got to choose an activity. Youngest to oldest. Owen chose bike ride. Adam chose the game clue. Madelyn chose monopoly. 3 hours later we finished. Catherine and Julianne don't get to choose tonight. We have a rule "only 1 monopoly game a year". Now we've met our quota! No more monopoly until 2014. Miraculously there were no tears. (Of course that is because Adam won).
