As my quest this summer is to simplify my life I have decided to start a weekly series. Every Tuesday I'll be sharing one simple things of summer.
Last week it was this...
Swinging...you pretty much can't get more simple than that.
Well except for this!
When I was a kid I lived on a street, a typical street with houses down each side.
But I was lucky that the lots directly across the street from us had a small creek that ran through them so no one was allowed to build there. So every summer these extra deep lots would grow up into a bit grassy field. And every summer the neighborhood kids would run and play games in the tall grass.
I spent hours in that grass looking up at the sky, playing hide and seek, and sharing secrets with my friends.
A well manicured lawn could never, ever, be that much fun!
My kids are lucky...their house is surrounded on all sides by grassy fields!
Our lake cabin has a field they can play in at 'A Summer Place Farm' next door!
And the only thing better than playing in a field at home is playing in the tall grass along a lovely lake!
If you would like to join my on Tuesdays I would love to have you! This is a simple series...no giveaways, no prizes. The activities require no batteries, no USB cables, no fancy props. Just the simple things that summer has to offer!
Think popcicles dripping down your chin, bike rides at sunset, playing catch, going fishing...you know simple old-fashioned fun!
Wait a minute...
Sudden change of rules.
You will be allowed batteries for one thing...but only that one thing.
Yep I almost forgot our cameras take batteries.
So please take your camera along...
With batteries would be nice.
I also wanted to let you all know that
