George Bernard Shaw said, "We don't stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing." Not Scoot. I was careful, when discussing the party with one friend's mother, to say the boys would "just be hanging out," since that's the accepted terminology for even younger kids. But I knew, with Scoot in charge, they'd be playing. They played badminton outside in the dark, they played board games inside, and whatever they called it, they had a good time.
We are grateful for creativity!
