August 31: The thrill of the tire swing.
Ahhhhh, tire swings! There’s something about them, isn’t there? I have fond memories from my own childhood of swinging on them and giggling with my friends, then jumping off with black streaks across my hands and the seat of my shorts. My children are just now discovering the thrill of tire swings, and they beeline for them at the park. This particular swing was part of the playground at our amazing Iara Valley bed-and-breakfast in Romania. It seems like forever ago, before my accident, before my surgery, before I’d spent 11 unexpected days away from home. I can’t yet walk the kiddos to the park and push them on the tire swing, but I’m working toward that goal every single day.

  5. That is a lovely photo. I always loved swings.

  6. Hahaha! I wanted to come up with an original comment, but I just have to agree with everyone else! Great “T” post!!

  7. Hope you can walk with the kiddos to the park soon!

  8. I love the overhead view. Hope you feel better soon!

  9. I hope you get back to pushing your kids in a tire swing soon. I read your story…what an adventure. I lived in Sicily, but my husband was in the Navy and we used the Naval Hospital. A few years ago, someone else posted on their blog about being in an Italian hospital and it was very similar to your experience…a shared room or ward. Except she knew the language which would be a huge advantage! Get well soon!

  10. Tiny toddler and baby people having a terrific time! Aw…love it! Anne

  11. I love the photo…..and goodness knows, I’ve spent my share of time on tire swings and pushing them for my children too.
