Playing at Home, back in the day
We lived in a big woods, although today it might look smaller, our perspective changes when we grow up.
Sometimes we hiked out of the woods into foreign fields, as we got older, we explored further. I don't ever remember anyone asking what we were doing or where had we been. We always come home for the next meal, so I guess our parents didn't worry. Could we do that today? I guess if I still lived in that woods, it would be okay.
We had a tree house and an amazing teeter totter that not only went up and down but around. Our Dad built that for us, it had tractor seats on the end. We also had a giant swing that hung on a branch of a tall oak tree. The seat was wooden and could hold two little kids at the same time. Hours I spent swinging. We could easily stand on the seat and get going really good and then sit and enjoy the ride.
Summers seemed to last forever, what happened to them lasting forever?
