While Elynor played, my mom & I spent July 4th painting. Check out our artistry -

Creating this beautiful bags game was truly a family affair. My dad created the wood boxes from scraps. Ryan & I created the design. Then my mom & I measured, drew, and painted. And painted. And painted some more (it felt like forever to get them just right).

The design pays homage to the alma maters represented in our family (undergraduates only). 4/7 of us graduated from the University of Illinois. 2/7 from Illinois State (Redbirds). And 1/7 from Indiana State (Sycamores). Visually, these fractions aren't perfectly distributed. But we Illini really weren't interested in sharing a box. :)

Here's to many happy bags games -
