Puzzling

Puzzles are a favorite in our house. We have over 20 different puzzles. The kids love to put them together over and over again. This is a new one they got and love. I must say it makes me proud to have such good little puzzlers. Probably because I feel it's one of the few traits they got from me. I love puzzles. My Dad and I used to sit in our kitchen with the wood stove rolling putting together 500 to 1000 piece puzzles for hours.
A past time I miss since a 1000 little pieces of card board is not exactly a kid friendly item to have around, nor do I have the time to sit and do a puzzle for and hour or two. I'm training them early so maybe when they get older we can all hover over huge hard puzzles in our kitchen with our propane stove keeping us toasty. Maybe it will be a fond memory of theirs with Mom like mine is with my Dad. Something I cherish and will even more so when he passes on.
