One of my favorite memories was playing jumping rope with my friends. Is one of my favorite games. I was great except when we had to jump faster. Every Saturday afternoon we would be outside playing until dinner time. The memories of my childhood bring me joy.
These days are a little different. In my neighborhood, it’s rare to watch any kid playing outside. The children these days spend more time in their computer games or watching TV.
As soon our weather begins warming up, I’ll take my grandkids outside and play. That will give them a break from the TV or computer games. I can’t jump rope anymore, however; the memories of all of us playing outside are precious.
