Every kid needs someone to teach them to climb a tree. Thankfully, we have Aunt Christy who is aware of this important part of childhood.
We have a couple of trees that are ideal for early climbers who are in need of a little help.
I don't remember climbing any trees until I was in junior high, actually. Up until that point, we'd lived in apartments or condos or other communities that didn't have the types of trees you can climb. But once we had a house, we had great climbing trees and I loved nothing more than to climb up high and just observe the world.
Now that I'm a mom, I'm not so sure I want my kids being so adventurous. It's definitely a scary idea- kids way up high with hard ground beneath them.
But climbing trees is such a kid thing, isn't it? Like cartwheels and splashing in puddles and skipping.
Can someone please tell me why my 6 year old is already posing for her Senior Pictures??
And while there are no pictures to prove it... I just might have climbed up into the tree for a minute or two...
