{ the simple things }

There it waits.
The tire swing swing under the old sycamore tree.
Waiting for summer to arrive.
Waiting for bare feet to swing it back and forth.
Waiting for little hands to hold on tight.
Waiting for kids to spin round and round in circles filling the air with laughter.
Waiting for summer to arrive.

We had a break in the weather earlier this week. The kids played on the tire swing late into the evening. When I told them it was time to come inside to get cleaned up and ready for bed, they begged to play outside just a little bit longer.

I can't wait for summer to get here. To watch the kids play in the yard and swing in circles round and round on the tire swing. Just a few more weeks and summer break will will be here.

There is one sure sign of our kids getting older. That is that the tire swing is to low to the ground for them now. I guess their daddy will have to tie the rope up a little taller for them this year.
