Clean up, quick! Zeus is coming!

I just walked in on my 5 and 6 year olds chanting "All hail Zeus!" so I decided I ought to see just what kind of a game they were playing. They had most of the pieces of a Star Wars chess set lined up on a box. This, they explained to me, was the war.

A few other chess pieces were on a white cushion. This, apparently, was Heaven. Sometimes the spirits of the people in the war drifted upwards and came to Heaven. In Heaven they apparently had a big party ... but they cleaned up quickly before Zeus came back. If Zeus found Heaven a mess, he'd shock them all with his thunderbolts.

I don't know whether to be proud or worried, but you can't say they're not creative.

I heard my boys saying the same thing the other day! LOL Although they were playing something else.

I love it!

I wonder if they ought to print up bumper stickers:

Zeus is coming! Look busy!"
