|A boy and his checkers|
Leigh would rather read or draw. If she gets a good book, she can read for hours and tune the world out. She would rather create her own cards, posters and bookmarks rather than buy one.
Carson has no interest in anything literary (unless there are awesome pictures involved) but loves board games and numbers. So much so that he bought himself a calculator rather than a book at the book store last time he had money to spend there. He walks around figuring out equations and asking people to guess what certain figurings equal.
So his choice of activities on Monday morning relaxing time is a game. Which he did pretty good at.
