I tried to remember the games we played as kids, so I could teach Eliz & the neighbor boy, also known as Conan. I remember playing different versions of tag, hide and seek, using the leaves to pretend to be zombies or vampires. Something I hope my kids had from my childhood-neighborhood friends. 4 or 5 other kids around her age to play with. There are great places to play where we live, but not many kids to play with. You need other kids to build forts with, have wars with, climb trees and explore the world with. Bry-D and I plan to move to a place that's kind of out there, with enough land for my huge garden, and his 4 wheelers & dirt bikes. The only downside I foresee is the lack of playmates for the kids. How to live out in the middle of nowhere and still be able to have spontaneous play dates?
