Dodge ball

The other day we were all playing dodge ball outside our apartment and a young French boy around Jonah’s age was watching us and we invited him to join. I was joking with DeAnna and asked if we should teach him the 5 D’s of dodge ball (Dodge, Dip, Dive, Duck and Dodge). But since we didn’t know all those words in French, we decided to just go with French rules, C’est toi – Touché toi! (It’s you, it touched you) I knew the word for duck but I was pretty sure that canard (the duck that swims) did not also mean to duck down from the ball. We all had fun playing and I was surprised at Jonah’s vocabulary when it comes to playground rules and he even knows the French way to say “nah nah nah nah.”
