The swing set is being taken down. My husband put it on Craigs list and has already received many calls. The kids are all upset. (they are ages 25-12) Even though we can't remember the last time anyone used it, we're talking YEARS.
Still, I know what they mean.
Our yard won't be a kid yard anymore.
Sure, we'll still have the soccer net and the lax wall cluttering our lawn...
but no swing set?
It just seems wrong.
I remember when that was the big purchase and how excited the kids were. I use to have a baby swing on there and spent countless hours pushing someone while the others played on the slides. I would sweep out the little fort to make sure there weren't bugs and hose it down to get rid of pollen. Every couple of years my husband would re-stain and seal the wood.
But, it's time. That part of the yard is going to seem mighty empty though.
