5 up

I just returned from Julia's birthday snack at school. It was so nice to be in her class. Her teacher has her hands full with 19 5-6 year olds, but she does a great job with them. Julia picked the game for us to play and she chose 5 up.

I used to play this game in elementary school - but it was called 7 up.

5 kids are at the front of the class and everyone else puts their heads down (no peeking) and their thumbs up. Then those five kids each choose one kids and tap their thumb. Then the teacher says "heads up, stand up" and the 5 people who had their thumbs tapped stand up and take turns making a guess who tapped them. If they get it right they trade places with the person that tapped them, if they get it wrong, they sit back down.

It was fun to watch the kids play - and what tricky little ones they are indeed. Pointing to other kids to throw the scent off their trail and acting all guilty when it wasn't them. Tricky.

We played 3 times - and I was picked twice. I'm pretty cool.
