Then when I am all done with my chores I get to play with my toys. </li></ul>
  9. 9. <ul><li>I love to play games. On one game you have to put the ball on the top of the stick without touching it with your hands. Its called ball and cup and it is my favorite game. There is also a board game but not very many kids like to play it because its not very fun. </li></ul>
