Play the College Game with the Kiddos this Weekend!

I am playing a game with my children.  The game is called, “You know where they went to college right?”
How do you play? Easy. If the kiddos mention a person (athlete, journalist, musician, writer – whomever) that they are interested in and they’ve gone to college I make an effort to point that out.
Truthfully, the game works much better on my oldest.  She’s used to the game and only replies, ‘Oh, yeah?’  Even still from time to time she will mention colleges that she’s interested in. The same colleges and universities I’d previously mentioned.
Score one for reverse psychology!
Find out who your kids are really fascinated with or inspired by and see if you can find out where they went to college and what they majored in.  Play the…
