I am excited to say that last weekend, Seth and I taught Mia and Jared how to play Pinochle. I learned from my friend Carrie's family. I was delighted when my brother and his wife started playing and couldn't have been happier to play with Seth.

For a beginner, Pinochle can appear very complicated. There is so much to remember before you even start laying down cards. Jared and Mia have caught on surprisingly well and it is a great motivator for getting homework done. We can play a couple of hands before they go to bed.

It is so fun for me to play with the kids a game that I really love.
