Lincoln is going through a checkers phase. His Dad taught him to play and he was hooked! He plays with Viva, and once in a while he talks Evan into playing. His desire to play is greater than the desire of his fellow housemates, so I found him resorting to playing both sides of the board on his own. I introduced him to checkers against the computer (or, rather, the iPad!) and he was enthralled. Eventually I dragged him away from his games, but - it's fun to see him focus so long on something he enjoys!
