Passion for Pokemon

Andy got into Pokémon in school and he attempted to teach me a while back. It wasn’t until we got the Pokémon Battle Academy that I began to really understand the gameplay dynamics. Once that happened we were all playing. Andy, Eva and me. Andy and Eva even taught their cousins how to play and each morning they’ve been busy playing.

I picked up a few packages of Pokémon cards this week and the kids had fun going through them. Eva talked with Andy and he agreed to let her go through all of his cards and set up a few decks to play with. When she got home today that is exactly what she did. She went through all of his cards and began making decks to play with.

Building Birdhouses With Grandfather

Our kids and my niece and Nephew got some real world building training from my dad today. Each Summer the kids attend Science School in Woods Hole. This year, however, tings are happening remotely with my sister, Tara in charge. My dad came up with the idea of building bird houses with the grandchildren. He had the scrap wood and he cut all the pieces to size and then set up a plank on sawhorses with taped off sections for each of the kids. He had some help in supervising the kids but he showed them how to hammer a nail and then he also drilled some guide holes for the kids. I did not get to see everything happening because I was taking my Krav Stripe test via Zoom in another part of the yard. The kids were so proud of their creations and loved spending time with my dad.

Tonight we had a movie night in the back yard and played an 80’s classic, The Karate Kid. Eva made it all through the movie but Andy decided that it was getting late so he put himself to bed.
