Fledgling Scrabble Players

With each passing day our little Swaits become more fully Swait! Renata and I faced off across a Scrabble board while Joffre Jr. bounced between teams. Renata acquitted herself well, scoring over a hundred points in a game in which we didn't use any of the modifiers on the board. It was fun to watch them learn to think with the tiles and the board; Joffre kept wanting to spell words and just plunk them down on the board, regardless of whether they touched other tiles or not.

I think there are going to be some epic battles around here in a few years.
