Wish List: Croquet Set
I bought a little toy set for Lucy. We practiced with the set a little yesterday afternoon, but I think we will both do better with a real set. I tried to show Lucy how to hold the mallet. But I mainly hit the ball. There is something satisfying about hear the crack of the ball.
When we were children, Alex and I spent a fair amount of time playing croquet with J Van and Larry Handy behind the little store across the street. Dad said the community would also play in my parents’ front yard and behind Memaw’s store.
I’m ready to pick up the game once again.
