Just got back from the church, where we set up for the movie viewing we’re having tonight. Raising money for CHIC. >.< Than's friend Jonathan is over, and I decided to walk to the park with them. We spent probably an hour goofing off...it was just really fun. I haven't played on the playground in a long time, and it felt great. I love not acting my age.
So then we came home and Mom left to teach some lessons...and they were on the computers. So I yelled at them to get off and go outside (it must be in the high forties or low fifties, it's wonderful!) and we played with Than's foam rocket. Theeeen we played with the soccer ball. Finally, Jonathan got a hold of Than's rocket and started shooting us, so we locked him out of the house and started plotting. I came up with the idea to take our walkie-talkies, and we snuck outside. Jon was nowhere in sight, so I ran up the street (we live on a four street block, but we call it a 'U', because that's more what it looks like). Jon appeared and started chasing Than, but I made it to the other side of the block. It was so great...we were just shouting at each other via the walkie talkies...the neighbors probably thought I was insane. :P So anyway- after about fifteen minutes, Than got the foam part of the rocket away from Jon and ran. We hid behind the willow tree and discussed our options, and Than stuck the rocket up his shirt and took off, just as Jon appeared. I stalled him for five minutes or so...it was hilarious, we were acting as if it was a life or death situation, then suddenly Jon drops his arms to his sides and says, "Since when did we get so serious about this, anyway?" I just laughed and said it was fun. Sooo...he started chasing me again...and then he had me backed up to the river, and he held the rocket shooter up and demanded that I give him the walkie talkie. It was so randomly fun. I just ran back and forth at the bottom of the U, trying to get away, and eventually I did...came back to the house, collapsed on the floor, and Jon came up and surrendered. :P It was so fun. We’re all completely exhausted now, but it was worth it.Time to regain my energy before I have to go to church for the youth group thing. :P

    Reminds me of how we used to play together back when I wasn’t so old :-P

    no one is too old to be childlike! That’s the secret to staying young. That’s also why I loooove babysitting, helping in the nursery back home, and hanging out with kids. Though… I must admit people might have thought me weird to be playing with kids half my size.

    I like doing nursery at church, too, Ruth. I especially love the age where the kids are old enough to talk and play games, but not old enough to be self conscious!

    Hey, Jessie! Er, I don’t think there is…though if anyone knows, it would be Ted, not me.
