Ball Game

The boys came up with a game the other evening they like to call “The Ball Game.” The rules are simple. Grab a colorful plastic ball, hold it at the same starting point, and on the count of three, toss if forward. Whichever ball goes the farthest wins, unless it hits the wood chips which results in an automatic loss. Luke can’t get enough as the lead inventor of the game. Over and over, and over he wants to play, and with as many as he can recruit to participate. “Mom, can you surprise me one day and buy a trophy and if I am the winner of the game, I can win the trophy? That would be so exciting to win a trophy.”
