Good Morning, Everyone.
If we were having coffee together, it will have to be quick. I spied snowdrop flowers peeking out from the dead leaves. Yard clean up calls while the indoor chores have been hollering. Every horizontal surface seems to be muted in a soft coating of dust. It is all so overwhelming. I’m not sure where to begin. But the quick coffee chat is not because I am anxious to start cleaning. The Davis Park Ferries to the beach started up. A walk on the beach is going to take priority over the dust. I am curious to see how the dune project and beach houses fared through the winter. Although there was not much ice this winter, the winds have been relentless. I’m getting on the 10:00 ferry this morning.
If we were having this quick cup of coffee together, I would report that I finished the research for the Blogging A-Z April Challenge. It is titled A Small World Jumping Name Game. Twenty-six children from around the world will jump rope through the alphabet with their friends. I was able to represent twenty-six different countries without repeating languages. Each day, a letter will be introduced with the chant that is similar to the familiar jump rope chant, A My Name Is…. Within the chant, each child will announce a game they like to play. A description of the game will be included in the post. I realized that a majority of the games featured were found on the (gasp) internet, where authenticity may not be the priority. As the challenge progresses, I hope that a world of readers may be generous in adding their favorite childhood game from their homeland.
It’s time to gulp the last swallow of coffee and catch the ferry. Hope Everyone out there is well.
Have a good week, Everyone. Make it great.
