Question of the Day

Suggested by Shaker Mama_Skywalker: "Did you have a favorite summer project as a kid? I just made pasta with the twins and they liked it."

When I think of childhood summer projects, the thing that comes to mind is learning how to do something. One summer, it was learning to ride a horse. Another summer, it was learning to ride a bike without training wheels. Other summers, it was swimming and roller skating and tubing and skateboarding.

Lots of skinned knees and bumps and bruises, lol.

Because I'm not cut out for outdoors activities, some of these "stuck" more than others: The horseback riding, because the horse is doing most of the work; the roller skating, because I could do it inside at the local rink; the swimming, because I stay cool, even outdoors. But I loved all of them.
