End of an Era
And of course, it feels like another end to an era. An era where my children asked to be pushed on the swing or to have tea in the fort. An era where swords were wielded from high atop the castle and an escape from the bad guys was a simple jump down the slide. An era where legs pumped harder and faster in order to reach the sky and where dizziness was highly anticipated from twirling endlessly on the tire swing. As wonderful as the next era promises to be, I can't help but feel a twinge of sadness as this one ends.
Of course, we still want the children to be outside so we are coming up with new ways to make sure they continue to be drawn to the great outdoors. I'm thinking another tree swing is a must. Bryce is dreaming of zip lines, climbing walls and slack lines! And Harris? He's still lobbying hard for a trampoline!
