Birthday Party!

We had a birthday party a couple of weeks ago for two of the boys—the third and fifth boys, whose birthdays are just a week apart the end of September and beginning of October. It had to be postponed for several days from the original date selected, because the older boy was sick, and only one friend ended up being able to come. That was disappointing, but we made the best of it. The weather was horrid—cold, rainy and windy, so they had to play in the house. They played Elephant Stop for awhile. In that game, one person is blindfolded, and counts to, maybe, 30, while everyone else moves around. Then, the blindfolded person calls out, “Elephant Stop!” and the others must stop wherever they are. They are allowed to move any part of their body besides their feet. Some boys climbed up on the bunkbeds!


After that game, we moved out to the garage to  break a pinata that the older birthday boy made. It was supposed to look like a sheep. It was great fun, as usual, to watch the participants trying to break the swinging pinata!
