Four Square

I excelled at several 4th grade recess activities. As many of you know, I was the Hopscotch champion. I held the record for consecutive jumps in Double Dutch for 3 weeks, and I was better than most at Jacks. But my favorite game was 4 Square. It wasn't that I could play very well; I had another incentive altogether. The coolest boys played, and if I flirted appropriately, they would lift me out of line. I assumed they liked me. I look back and realize they didn't think I was cute: they just didn't want me to play!

When I was invited to play this game of 4 Square I felt vindicated! Thanks, Kelly!

Actually, today I sat in a park in San Diego, watching a grandson's baseball game, with an ocean breeze blowing, palm trees swaying, a book in my lap, and a coke in my hand. Pretty much paradise! Give me another 4 days....

Ooooooh, I loved 4 Square, too! But my favorite was Kickball...probably because my childhood sweetheart was the best kickball player and was always one of the captains who got to choose sides. I was always the first girl picked because I could kick a ball as hard and as far as the boys...and my Sweetheart always picked me for his team if he got the first pick, haha!
