I finally got around to playing Minecraft. I got Ethan and Matthew to teach me how to play. It took me a few minutes to remember what button did what but I got that hang of it. Eventually we created Dadland and worked together to build a castle by a lake. I then constructed a bridge to nowhere (no tax dollars used for this one). What can I say, it’s a work in progress. Some things I heard myself say to the boys were
“We need more cobblestone! Get back to the mines and don’t come back without a full load!”
“Stop setting fire to the trees Matthew!”
“Stop hitting your brother with a pick axe!”
“Will the forest fires go out on their own?”
“How do I get this chicken out of a hole?. Never mind I just buried it by accident”
MATTHEW’S THOUGHTS: Dad, I was chasing Ethan with a sword, not a pick axe. Minecraft rocks. One time at night I wandered really far and found gold. Unfortunately I couldn’t dig it out and that’s when I decided to come home. My goal is to make a golden pick axe.
