Well, what do you know? This week is National Backyard Games Week! I’m ready to play. How about you?
I can’t be sure, yet my gut tells me this is a relatively new weeklong observance. And I’m all for it—fresh air and a friendly game of freeze tag, badminton, or cornhole. Nothing wrong with that! The idea is, of course, to bring together friends and families for some outdoor fun.
So as we head into the Memorial Day weekend and holiday, I encourage you to step away from the computer, smartphone, and tablet. Step away from any schoolwork that’s calling your name. It’s time to step into a backyard, a park, or playing field and have some fun! You deserve it!
