After the Sewing...

So this year at Lake Martin we were lucky enough to find a couple of rope swings! These provided hours of fun (plus bruised flanks, sore arms, and back pains). Now, I've lost Tracey's clip - Scott, will you check and see if you have it - but here's a sample of my work:

Elizabeth opted for the easier version, though the level of difficulty in accessing the swing was much higher - you had to traverse a steep slope with pebbles then step up on a tree. Now this was edited for time, as it took her 28 full seconds to get her nerve up, but God bless her for trying it!

I'll post Tracey's swing when I find the clip. (It's similar to Elizabeth's down to the scream at the end). Here's to 40+ year old women willing to laugh in the face of terror and the threat of spinal surgery for the pursuit of adventure!

Somehow it's just not the same unless you scream! I feel my family would be let down if I didn't scream! Such fun - even if I did talk myself into it. Funny the things we do so our children won't be disappointed. :)
