Dan felt it was time for the kids to learn a little poker, so he dumped out the change jar, scrounged up all the pennies, sat them down with some new Star Wars playing cards Jared got for Christmas, and got busy teaching them Texas Hold 'Em (at least, I think that's what they were playing! ha!)
They played a round face-up so he could guide them through the different hands. Connor was SO distraught over the idea of people seeing his cards! After a round of face-up, they played the normal way.

Jared has his hand under the table so there was zero chance of anyone spotting them. He's telling his daddy, "I don't know if I should stay in, or be out." He was being very serious about the whole thing!
Em had some serious beginner's luck going and won 2-3 rounds in a row! Thank goodness they were only playing for pennies or we'd have been in trouble... *grin*
