11:41 am - What is Darlene Up To Now?
Yes, I'm making a rope ladder. I need more exciting things for kids to do outside when they come over. This has been a challenging project for me and lots of fun! I still have to put the last three rungs on.... which will require another ladder. I plan to finish it today. There's something so enticing about seeing a rope ladder disappear up into a tree. Brings out the "kid" in me. I want more of this kind of thing in our yard!
Another much simpler project is this "tree walk". I didn't have two trees close together, so I had to improvise. It's great for balance. It involves learning to walk on a "tightrope" while holding on to a rope above you. It takes a bunch of practise to get it down, and I look forward to seeing kids try.
I have some other ideas percolating which I'll share later!
