Fun fact: I have four (adult) children. They are all different. Like really different. Before I had kids, I had no idea that each one would be so very different from the other.

School recess, playground games. So many memories flood my mind when I hear those words. Dodgeball, softball, Red Rover, four square…..we spent all of recess in elementary school passing the time with those games.
