Donna didn't go outside with the others. Donna built a hopscotch in our living room. Donna learned how to play hopscotch at school recently, and was eager to teach us all how to play. When I called the others in for the evening tasks, Donna asked, "Are you calling everyone in to play hopscotch?"
Oh, man, what could I say to that? Suffice it to say we had an extra 1/2 hour or so of family play time. It was well worth the later bedtime for all the fun we had trying to hop along the squishy, slide-y pillows Donna had used for squares.
|This is the hopscotch that Donna built.|
|Dad takes a try.|
|Later she took flight.|
|This is Donna trying out her game.|
|And she got back to the start.|
|This one of Inge planning her route is a little blurry. But I love how it shows the other kids all engaged.|
|Stella reaching over to put John's "rock" back.|
Hence the illusion above that Stella was taking flight. She was really just trying to miss the next three pillows.
|And John ends with a bang.|
|Daddy getting ready to toss his coaster. Oh, I mean, rock.|
|Is Daddy trying to imitate Stella in her levitation?|
|And now Donna appears to be imitating Daddy.|
