Basement baseball

After dinner, the children like to play a new game they have invented, "Basement Baseball". The have this red plastic baseball bat and some balloons. The balloons get thrown ("pitched") and they play a game of baseball using the bed, lounge chair and bench as bases. All the children are invoved and encouraged to do their part, with Rose (1) playing interference, running around occasionally intercepting the balloon with a high pitched squeal of laughter.
Although Lana and I are upstairs we can hear them laughing, yelling, singing (!) and generally playing together. When we call them up for prayers, they will be all sweaty and tired from running around.
The children play together very well.
