"That's what learning is, after all; not whether we lose the game, but how we lose and how we've changed because of it and what we take away from it that we never had before, to apply to other games. Losing, in a curious way, is winning."
Recently our family gathered from around the country to spend a few days together. The weather was unseasonably cool and so indoor activities took over. An innocent game of Monopoly was initiated by the youngest boys. Before long three generations were gathered around the board. As you can see from the above picture, the game got serious. Hours passed as rules changed to meet the needs of the littlest boys at the table. But I think there were really 5 little boys who played that game.
