My friends and I always share cuttings from our houseplants. Cut about 3 inches from a healthy plant stem, place in a jar of water and wait for the stem to sprout roots. Some of the easiest plants to root from stem clippings are Coleus, Impatiens, Geraniums and Begonias. Plant the rooted stems in a pot and enjoy!
Here is a helpful how-to video.
I remember playing Kick the Can, Spud and other great outdoor games as a child. The long summer days were perfect for hours of fun with my friends. Sometimes outdoor games can get a little rough, so I would have adults play too.
Keep in mind the ages of the children participating, their skill level and most of all, consider safety first.

I’m back from California. The weather was beautiful and the Pacific Ocean was a spectacular sight for a land-locked person! We went to Santa Barbara for my niece’s graduation and celebrated my mother’s 83rd birthday. Life is good.
