    My journaling is 306 words.

    My siblings and I played a lot of games together. With my sister, it was mostly board games. With my brother, there were also imagination games, invented sports, and other shenanigans.

    Sheri, 5 year older than me, liked to set up scenes and pose me. She even dressed me up, including doing my hair, and then photographed me. I’m 8 in the first photo, which is definitely staged, although those are two games we played a lot: Mastermind and Clue. We especially played Clue a lot. You can see in the last photo that we eventually graduated to newer versions of the game. Sheri and I also played a lot of card games, Monopoly, Careers, Life, and Scrabble.

    I included the middle photo more because it has my sister in it; I only have a couple of childhood photos of her. But it shows our creativity, as we took the sweaters off the plush animals we got that Christmas and put them on our cats, Princess and Charlie, and we took turns photographing each other.

    Michael is 3 years younger than me and I don’t remember playing board games as much with him, though this photo is evidence we did. But I remember inventing our own backyard version of baseball we could play with just the two of us. We had a full page of handwritten rules. When we were even younger, we pushed our hands in the dirt in the backyard to create roads for his little metal cars to drive on. And we had imaginative adventures using few props in our bedrooms. I still have a short recording of part of one of these -- The Bottomless Pit -- because one day I turned on my little tape recorder during our play. It’s a treasure. I wish I had more video and audio memories from childhood.
