A croquet (Graham pronounces it crocket) set arrived on our doorstep this weekend. We didn’t order it, which means someone out in the world read the blog and responded. You made us speechless. We are so grateful.
I wanted you to know that we put it all together and played. There were lots of oohs and “What’s this for?” as we opened it. First, we played according to the rules and then Graham invented a game that had us playing around trees, under a swinging Grace, and across the yard. Between turns, we made sure to keep Grace swinging in her swing. We had a lot of fun doing it. Today’s course more resembled the traditional setup but had a Graham twist. Graham has even taken the opportunity to practice on his own.
Thank you for thinking of us, supporting us, adding fun to our lives, and making very visible when we are all apart from each other that we are all actually in this together. Thank you for being on Team Grace and Team Graham and loving on our family. If I knew it was you, and if it were safe to do, I’d give you a big hug.
