Photo Friday already?

Once upon a time, I was quite adept at climbing trees.  This tree was at my grandparents’ house and did a fantastic job of shading their driveway.  I remember, quite vividly, perching in one of its many crotches and writing my first poem (a copy of which I still have somewhere in my office).

When Bubbles was born, I was disappointed that we didn’t have any good climbing trees in our yard.  Then I moved to town, and each new place also lacked good climbing trees.  At last we have a place with lots of trees for the kids to climb, and they’ve taken to it like ducks to water (the older ones, anyway).  To me, there’s nothing quite like climbing a tree for fun and adventure.

Don’t forget to stop by Charnele’s blog and take a gander at her throwback post!

Did you climb trees when you were a kid?  Do you let your kids climb them?
