Woohoo! It’s Ball Season!
Some of you love baseball.
My family cheers for the Pittsburgh Pirates.
We love football too – if it is the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Right now – our Pittsburgh Penguins are in the Stanley Cup Playoffs,
and though they use a puck instead of a ball, it is still very exciting.
There is also basketball, softball, tennis, golf, volleyball, soccer, wiffle ball, ping pong, bowling, pool, and probably a million other ball games,
but my favorite ball game
(if you don’t count eating meatballs)
is Blue Ball!
My mom brought out the bucket of blue balls the other day, and boy oh boy did we have fun!
It’s a simple game, but such a BLAST!
Here is how you play it.
Step 1: Mom throws the ball in the grass.
Step 2: I run and get it, and then I run back.
Step 3: Now here is the FUN part….
Sometimes I bring the blue ball back to Mom,
but other times….. I ZOOOOOOOM right by her and trick her!
Sometimes I bring it to her and drop it…. but (get ready for this!) right when she goes to pick it up,
I grab it first!
And then – (are you ready for this one?)
other times I bring it back – but don’t let go of it, and I make her beg for it.
Sometimes Mom pretends to cry – – – like I can’t see a fake a mile away!
Other times I let her yank at it for a while and I ferociously (fake of course – but she doesn’t know!) GROWL!
Blue Ball is most fun when you play it by varying up the way you play Step 3 every time.
Isn’t that a great game?!
Hope you have some fun playing whatever kind of ball you like this weekend!
