That is an example of a big organized thing, but seriously, even if it was just a few minutes, with just a few kids, he had us playing some sort of game. Who can stand on their head the longest?, who could throw the rock closest to a cup? who can get the most skips out of their rock on a pond?, you name it, we played it. If you all are wondering where I got my competitive spirit from...now you know!
Jack, Grandpa, Ben and Drew
I don't believe that I am particularly creative in making up new games. I usually end up resorting to "Tic-Tac-Toe" and "Hangman". Well, that was until today. The boys were getting dressed for their Karate class and came down for some help with tying their belt. Somehow, Ben and I ended up in a tug-of-war with it. The result of that tug-of-war was the invention of a brand new game. The object of the game was for the boys to pull the belt out of my hand without falling over. If they were able to get the belt and remain on their feet, they got a point. If they ended up on their bottom with the belt, I got a point. It may sound like a silly game, or dare I say a "stupid" game, but we had such a good time and laughed so hard! Well, Spencer and I and Charlie did most of the laughing, but we all really did have fun with it. For my readers that care about winning and losing, I did win most of the matches. Ben was really catching on at the end and was tough to beat. Jack was hit-or-miss and I definitely had Drew's number. I don't think Drew got a single point. MUHAHAHAHA!!! Just kidding. ;)
What should we call our new game???
Jack Went DOWN...Another point for MOMMY!!
