Intense game almost made kids late

by jl333 on March 22, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Last night, I taught a 10 year old how to play Boggle. She loved the game so much that she literally wanted to play it the minute I walked in this morning. Her 7 year old brother even joined in. It was an intense game. We were on our fifth round, with absolutely not even a care in the world...except for how many words we could make. Then out of the blue, in a panicked voice the girl says...shouldn't we already be at school? Doh! Yes, we we're running late due to an intense game of Boggle. Try explaining that one to the parents or teachers!
