Inventing Games

The kids and I invented a new game today. It started with me on one side of the street and the kids on the other bouncing a racket-ball back and forth. Eventually, the game led to us trying to land a ball in the mailbox (and succeeding). The mailbox was 50 points, the newspaper slot 100 -- a much harder target.

A perfect mix of skill and luck, the kids already asked if we can play the game again next weekend (since it gets dark around 6:30pm.) Perhaps we can make our own "goals", although hitting the mailbox just right makes a satisfying "thunk-thunk-thunk".
