Snail Races

Good Free Fun. You should try it. My kids loved it.
Look closely and you’ll see the snails.
Ready, Set, Go.
DISCLAIMER: Lest you think I’m the cleverist mom around I suppose I should confess that I didn’t think up this game. My dad did. In fact, he has quite a few tricks up his sleeve when it comes to free entertainment. He gave my kids their first pet. The only one I’ve allowed in the house. I was generous and told them that if they managed to keep their pet well fed and it grows in the next 15-20 years then I’ll give them the OK for a real pet of their own when they are out of the house. Pet Rocks, rock. And they are free.

    Angie, totally fun, you can tell the boys love it. I just enjoyed reading several of your latest posts and loved all that you shared! Thanks for being so consistent. Things have been busy, which is obvious when I don’t post on my blog for four weeks, but at least I know if I have a spare minute I can always hop on over to your blog and feel connected, uplifted, entertained and edified! Thanks Angie!
