It was a great night in the old backyard last night...because we played kickball. It was the girls, and a cousin, and a couple of kids from up the street.
It had poured down rain all afternoon, so the grass was a little bit wet and slippery. More than once someone would round second base and end up tumbling towards third.
The leaves on the big trees were still dripping so anytime someone kicked the ball up into the tree and let it pinball down, there was a rain shower reprise for everyone underneath. We use badminton rackets for the bases and an over sized speckled ball to kick.
No one kept score, we ran faster than the mosquitoes, and played until it was too dark to see the ball rolled towards home.
It is so fun to see my kids and their friends play the same games I played...and I am glad that I can do it without needing hospitalization.
