Our son has always been a fan of being outdoors. Lately, however, that is all he wants to do - go outside. As soon as he wakes up he runs to the front door or to the back of the house where his swing set is. He is not quite old enough to do it all himself - climb the ladder or go down the slide. He does it with our help but that does not stop him from trying to do it on his own.
He he has no fear. He has always loved when we pick him up and raise him up high or run around carrying him. The higher the better. The faster the better. He loves adventure and trying new things. Which is why he loves the swing set. Well, everything minus the swings. They are not a fan favorite at the moment. They will inevitably be back in the rotation like many other toys and activities that he loves one minute and drops like a bad habit the next.
We we chose our home and the neighborhood very careful with the hope that he would enjoy being outside and playing. We are very glad we did. He is not one of those children who wants a tablet or other electronic device. He actually enjoys fresh air and all the outdoors has to offer for him.
The smile on his face is worth every minute of being in the hot sun and picking him up and guiding him down the slide over and over and over. He smiles. He laughs. He plays.
