Make Believe

A writer friend who home schools posted this pick on Facebook and I asked her permission to use it.

The kids are playing "train"

Just cracked me up for a Friday. Hope it brings a smile to you. What will you "play" today?

Enjoy the weekend, everyone

  1. My brother, sister, and I used to play train. Mom would move the chairs from the kitchen out to the living room floor whenever she mopped the floor. When she did that, we would play train with the chairs. :D Happy weekend to you, Joanne.

  7. Our kids sometimes played train when I lined the chairs up in the living room so I could scrub the kitchen floor. If the boys wouldn't play with her, our daughter (the youngest) would put stuffed animals in the other chairs.

    It's a toss-up. This weekend, I'm either gonna play writer or slug. :) Oh yeah, and go to a big car show, too.

    Have super weekend.

  8. I used to do that but it was buses not trains. We need to remember how powerful the imagination of children can be and grab hold of some of that power even though we're grown up and 'sensible'.

  10. Very cute and so nice to see that kids still use their imagination to play instead of sitting in front of the TV!. I had a friend whose father worked in clothing and he would come home with huge boxes that held clothes. When he was finished with them we would decorate them and then sit inside and pretend we were driving cars. Oh the good old days!

  11. Big, big smiles. And some lovely memories triggered too.
    I don't think we play enough. Or make enough room for silliness.
    As the weather cools down here I am looking forward to frosty mornings and trying to freeze soap bubbles. It is probably not going to get cold enough - but I will have fun trying. Lots of fun.

  12. Yes, way better than playing online games and playing on tablets. Great children!
