Having a few afternoon errands to complete, I left C and K in E's charge. A accompanied me to pick-up prescriptions and to get a new muffler. We waited in the office and made small talk with the wives of the shop owners. A noted the quieter drive home.

As I approached my house, I saw a huge crowd of girls. They were all just hanging around talking, some on bikes, others on scooters, still more languishing on the porch. I got out of the van and was swarmed. They were desperate. They needed ideas for play. Now.

I reached into my own bag of childhood memories and pulled out a few suggestions: Red Rover, Red Rover; Red Light/Green Light; Four Square; Jump Rope; Kick Ball.

They decided on Red Light/Green Light. To settle the "I wanna be the light first" issue, I thought going from youngest to oldest would work well. They quickly determined the order of turns and so now the song of giggles is blowing through the open windows.
