What are you all up to tonight?

Langston: Making slime! Let's make some more slime. Can we make more right now?

Mikey: Let's save the slime for later.

Jackie: (laughing) Yeah, and I don't feel like a box of slime mix really describes us as a family!

What do you like to do together?

Langston: Play cards!

Mikey: We do play a lot of cards.

Jackie: Langston has been playing cards and checkers since he was 2 years old. He can beat all of us at checkers!

Mikey: He learned how to play dominoes at Thanksgiving, and within a few hours, he was beating the adults.

Jackie: And Josie, you and Dad always draw together. Where's that project you've been working on?

Josie: (showing off a detailed drawing) It's a map! It shows everything that's going to happen at my birthday party!
