David caught this picture of me playing on the swings during our recent trip to Florida. So, it got me to thinking about what I liked to do during recess as a child. And, that was play on the swings and bars. But, I remember also offering to help the teacher during that time. I really would rather spend the time helping her than playing outside sometimes. Sometimes they let me help - and sometimes I played outside.
One memory that came back was "counts" for the swing. When all the swings were full, someone could come and stand by your occupied swing and say, "counts" ~ then they proceeded to count to some set number (I don't remember this part) and when they reached the amount, you had to get down and let someone else have a turn.
So, now I want to know - what did you enjoy about recess and playing on the playground when you were little?
