It's too cold to play outside, so we've found a new game to play. Michael's has marbles on clearance. They had bags for 50 cents... can't pass up that kind of fun, so I bought TWO!! haha.
Both boys are pretty interested (today) in playing. It was fun watching them. As I googled (is that a verb now?) marbles, lots of old Black and White photos appeared of boys shooting marbles, so I had to get out the camera and play with the settings and take some "action" shots. I really love these shots. Something about the Black and White really makes their facial expressions shout out they they are in serious business here. Are they playing "Keepsies"? ("Keepsies" (or "for keeps") is a variation in which players win the marbles used by their opponent.) If they keep up the interest I may get them new shooters for Valentine's day. That way they can tell them apart.
