My family and I live in Minnesota. We have four seasons just like every where else. However, our Winter lasts twice as long and our Summer is short it seems. So when it's finally nice enough outside, then we head out doors as well.
We have been blessed with living a block from a school with a playground. So, in the evenings after dinner if we don't hang out in the back yard, we head to the playground. As the weeks have gone by, my son's love for playgrounds has grown. He has alwys enjoyed being outside, no matter the weather.
The introduction to playgrounds has been so much fun for him. For someone who likes to be a little more independent this Summer, he is testing his skills out on the climbers. At first the idea of slides didn't interest him, but as soon as we got him to go down one he can't stop. As for his own skills and confidence, we have seen them grow by leaps and bounds since we started going to the playground.
Summers are filled with exploration and fun. 100 Days of Summer is about slides, tunnels, climbing, and running.
