My kids have a lot of fun outdoors.
I encourage them to go outside to play and have fun.
I try particularly difficult not to stifle their creativity. If they want to build a fort in the backyard, I Supply them with all of the materials they need. If the kids want to create a rock band, I help them create musical instruments out of the things around the house. One thing the kids absolutely prefer is going down to the creek by the house. I have been letting the kids go to the creek by themselves since they were in elementary university. I can see the creek from the beach house and I can usually see the kids if they are close to the shore. The kids disappeared from my view a couple of nights ago. I could hear them down by the creek, so I wasn’t particularly distraught. I saw Jack come up to the shed and he went down to the creek with a wheelbarrow. A few minutes later my child came to the beach house and he asked if all of us had any rope. I wanted more information, but I didn’t ask any questions. I told my child there was some rope in the basement behind the washing machine. About 30 minutes later I saw the kids coming up the side of the hill and they were dragging something in the wheelbarrow. It turned out to be an outdated AC unit. The kids saw the AC component standing in the creek. They knew it absolutely wouldn’t work, but they were so happy about their treasure find that they wanted my partner and I two see it. They had to work particularly difficult to pull that AC component out of the mud and drag it back to the house.
