We had a 6 foot inflatable soccer ball and played a game of soccer consisting of around 20 people. It got intense really quick and a lot of people backed down because it was so easy to get knocked down! We only played one game using the giant soccer ball, and then a game of regular soccer started. We were at O'Brien Park, so everyone sort of scattered and did their own thing.
A great game of Bigger Better took place on Monday night. A game that consists of four teams going door to door around the neighborhood collecting items. We started off with a pencil eraser. From that each team went door to door trying to obtain something bigger and better than the item received from the previous house.
Our Summer Kick Off consisted of a few games of Capture the Flag at McCollum Park in Downers Grove. However, instead of just a few ordinary games of Capture the Flag, we added a twist. We gave everyone nylon stockings filled with powder Tempur paint. Instead of tagging the opposing team, the players had to throw the paint bombs at them, leaving everyone covered from head to toe in paint!
How many of you were afraid of going to high school? Not me, I couldn’t wait. You have to understand I was a super awkward junior high kid. I was a big time nerd. I spent a lot of time taking apart and repairing anything I could. I also had a hunger for adventure. I spent my summers building elaborate tree forts and exploring the suburban wilderness.
I was in the city, heading to my train when I saw a man standing next to the street begging for money so he could find some place to stay. I stopped, pulled out my manna bag and said here ya go. He said "this is for me?" As I was waiting to cross the street I heard him say, " these are my favorite granola bars!"
