We went to the Gebhardts on Sunday afternoon so the gamers could get their fix, and Deborah and I had some good chat time. Her genius idea was to walk with the kids over to the elementary school’s playground. “Everybody needs recess time,” is an excellent life motto.
They had a blast. There are many things to choose from – swings, a merry-go-round (that for some reason I didn’t even see), a castle/adventure/mutipurpose climber, and best of all – The Web.
Deborah and I marveled that such a thing would even be allowed in our lawsuit-focused society. Just look at it! This has ‘strangulation’ and ‘broken bones’ written all over it, and the kids love it, as they should
When I was a kid we had two of those geodesic climbing domes on our school playground (one big, one small) – made up of metal bars put together not with rivets, but good old nuts and bolts. I believe the big one caused one broken arm/leg a year. Ah, good times.
This thing looked like a blast. I wanted to climb it, but I have these darn bones to look after.
Shoulda risked it.
