Thinking today of all the veterans in our family - Dad, both Grandfathers, Uncle Don, Uncle Jim.
Thinking we ought to have Mother's cousin Trevor Endsley still here, telling jokes and enjoying life. But his plane went down in WWII. I hope we will always count the cost before sending young people off to war.

Taught the neighborhood kids how to play hopscotch - of course they caught on right away!
We didnt get as far as how to throw your small stone onto a particular number. They just followed me on the 1, 2-3, 4, 5-6, 7, 8-9 10 with great glee. I left them streaming across the colored chalk grid.
They were so enchanted I didnt have the heart to explain to them they were "supposed" to turn around and go backwards also and they "should" use small stones.
We all won this game.

So beautiful - and you can see in their faces, they know they've got something good here.
