like father, like daughter

I have posted previously about Sarah's excitement over a "Sarah-sized" laptop computer that Nelson brought home from work. She has continued to use it it off and on since then. She can boot it up herself, open the program she wants (usually the typing program or the Paint program where she can draw). When she's finished, she can close the program she's using and shut the computer down.

But Sarah has seen her daddy use his computer to play games (her mommy too--crosswords, Sudoku, and the like), and she decided today that she wanted to be able to play games too. So this was the scene when I walked into the living room earlier.

It was kind of a sweet moment, father and daughter bent over the computer, with Nelson very patiently teaching Sarah what to click in order to play the game correctly. I got warm fuzzies watching him share one of his loves with her. Perhaps this can grow into something of a shared hobby for the two of them. I wouldn't want Sarah to spend an inordinate amount of time playing computer games, but as active as she is I don't really see that happening. But it was neat watching a bonding moment between father and daughter as he taught her how to play. :)
