A Little Danger is Good for the Soul

One of the best thing about campgrounds is that every now and then you find some old playground equipment.  You know, the really fun kind that probably aren't technically legal anymore?!  Merry go rounds, wooden teeter totters and the really high slides?  We found one of these in Nebraska, and the kids had a blast.  At first they were pretty is pretty high...but once they went down once, they wanted to go again and again.  I was able to watch their confidence grow in front of my eyes.  Safety is great and all that, but there is something to be said for letting kids take some risks.  They had a blast.
