Competition


Have I mentioned that things have gotten a little competitive around our boy-house this summer? We've instituted family game times with the express purpose of learning how to lose well. It is hard on these little men. They just love to win. 

Believe it or not, we are making serious progress in the post-game congratulations and finishing a game even when losing looks inevitable. This is tough work. I am finding though that no matter how many game days we have: these boys were made to compete. I can't drive that out of them. They just need to be taught to do it in the right way. Gracious winning is as tough as losing. 



Today, a book was written about the winning hockey tournament game from the parking lot. Shew. Still got some work to do.
