The kids had so much fun sliding, running, swinging, and playing. Timothy made a pretend "campfire" with sticks and twigs, and we got longer sticks and "roasted marshmallows" (leaves on the end of our sticks). We made pretend s'mores...and I've promised the kids some real ones very soon.
Zola learned how to get into the swings by herself today - the ones lowest to the ground. She slides one leg over (with much effort), then straddles the strap before swinging her other leg over, straightens herself in the seat...and Voila! She is ready to swing! She also has mastered sliding down backward - and upside down! She is one tough cookie!!!
Hopefully the kids got enough fresh air and burned off plenty of energy. This pretty weather won't last, according to the weatherman...so we tried to fill their little "tanks" full today to last them most of the week!
