Hopscotch

The boys requested to play in the front yard on Thursday afternoon.  It was nice and warm so I happily agreed.  I sat in the grass flipping through some catalogs that came in the mail while the boys played t-ball.

When t-ball got boring I suggested that we play hopscotch on the sidewalk.  Wildman helped me find some chalk then requested that I draw the squares all the way down the sidewalk to the end of street.  He likes everything to be as big or as long as possible…  I declined but told him that I would draw up to 15 squares.  He seemed happy with that.

The thing about Wildman is that he must have his hopscotch game start with a “0” square instead of a “1”.  He made sure to grab the chalk from me to correct the starting position.  🙂  Then he tacked on a few more squares on the end of the game making it go all the way up to “18”.

Wildman played a few rounds while Cutie Pie rode his scooter.  Sometimes Cutie Pie would ride right over the hopscotch game much to Wildman’s chagrin.

I even gave it a try or two as well.  Wildman insisted on taking my picture…  I just noticed Cutie Pie fell off his scooter in the shot that Wildman took!  He never complained or cried.  Guess his fall wasn’t that bad 🙂

We played out front for about an hour then J came home on his motorcycle.

The wind was pretty strong which meant that J wanted to hit the beach with his friends for a kiteboarding session.  We all went with him.  Photos of that to come!

    These post’s of you guys out enjoying the weather make me so jealous! We were having great weather, as in short sleeves, but it is raining now and pretty cold. We could even see some snow! I am so ready for spring weather…and not every other day!

    I still love hopscotch and my little girl likes to play it, too. I’ll have to make a 19 square one next time. Too funny. Wildman did a good job taking the photo of you.
