Right after I had put croquet down as one of the things I wanted to do, my brother Ben asked me if I wanted to play a game of, what d'ya know, croquet. So I said yes, and he set it up for us to play. I was kinda scared because I definitely have not played since I was a LOT younger. But, I decided to give it my best shot. Literally.
(The picture at right is before we played.) Ben had to explain the rules to me after I told him that I was pro. He didn't believe me. The picture above is my first try- it went a little off. It took forever to get out of the rocks. Ben was a little smug about how good he was, and the game ended with Ben at 3 and me at 2 after what he called "luck." My summer project is underway!
