While our days are mainly filled with vineyard work for now, we do take time to play. The following shows a glimpse of the lightheartedness of our boys. They have a healthy (I hope!) competitive spirit amongst them. I must admit though, sometimes they are a bit too daring for my mother’s heart.
In our backyard, John hung a rope swing that is 35 – 40 feet high from a pecan tree branch. Swinging is one thing but they decided to climb all the way to the top. Having been called outside to watch the performance, I had to laugh as they each had to outdo their younger brother.
Starting with the youngest son, a simple halfway up the rope climb was sufficient.
Then, all the way to the top for the next oldest.
Wait, I can climb without using my legs!
Finally, how about an upside down climb – all the way to the top!
And, not to be left out, our youngest daughter … well, she was content to just swing.
