First the kids made their own Pokemon to use for a later game
Playing "Gotta Catch Em All". Basically you try and throw something on top of at least one Pokemon before the player pulls it away. It was so popular we played at least 3 rounds.
Pokemon training relay race. Each child pretended to be Ash, one of the Pokemon trainers.
"Catch the Pokemon". I think Will described it as similar to dodgeball. Or maybe freeze tag. It's hard to remember exactly.
The Pokeball cake. Easiest one I think I've ever made.
I was asked recently to describe Will's personality. One word that comes to mind is serious. We can often find him writing stories or concentrating on a task for long periods of time. At the same time he loves to be goofy and silly and make everyone around him laugh. He's very smart and likes to read and do math. I think out of all our kids he's the most well-rounded. He plays the piano, enjoys playing sports, and does well in school. We love him and are grateful to have him in our family.
