This is what my childhood was full of, riding my bike around, playing in dirty creeks, catching tadpoles and coming home with all sorts of leeches and parasites attached – but hell it was fun 🙂
I think I have forgotten the feeling of mud between my toes and the carefree nature of not knowing, nor caring what I was treading on..only concerned about the chase 🙂
I gotta say, i never read books in trees tho, whilst Chaos can't quite read a novel yet she enjoys the audio books of Roald Dahl and JRR Tolkien and reads them like she can't wait to be able to do it all by herself…
Courageous – for getting in that water which if swallowed would prolly give you the runs for a month.
Helpful – willing to play and help other kids there get in the water – much to other parents dismay 🙂
Adventurous – never shy of trying something different 🙂
Optimistic – not giving up when there were no tadpoles to be found in the bottom dam.
Smart – packing herself a change of clothes for the ride back home – yup I never did that
