when i was young...

When I first moved to my house about ten years ago, my nieces and nephews came over all the time with their children who were very young then. My father built them a swing and we hung it from the oak tree in the backyard . The kids loved to see how high they could swing whenever they visited. Now they are "too old" to swing and they seldom have time to come by. I can't seem to take the swing down though.

 

I have another set of nieces and nephews who have babies now and I'm hoping that they'll get to come visit and swing. So the swing that was made for that generation waits to be brushed off, tied tight again, and offer a ride to the next to come along.
