Yes, all year round. We had a lot of acres to roam around on, and we made the most of them! Trails, meadows, ponds, raspberry patches, huge hills for sledding

Oh yes - everyday unless I was sick or the weather was really horrible - I loved being outdoors as a child and wish more childeren would be active outdoors instead of being in the house with the darn video games & cellphones.

Don't sweat the small stuff!!!

No, I was a reader and was in my room reading every chance I could get, Going outside was a necessary evil I endured when Mom made me. We didn't have many places to play, and I didn;t like doing gymnastics like the other girls. So I chose to be isolated;in my own imaginary world.

What I do about my weight expresses how I feel about myself and my relationship with my Lord right now.

Yes, I loved playing outside when I was a child, now, not so much. I have a hard time with the heat of the summer and the cold of the winter. We put in an above ground swimming pool this year. I'm hoping to get in some watercise in this year.

Yes, as much as we possibly could. Our yard was a wonderful place to play!

My mother was an advocate of getting outside as much as possible. She hated to "waste" a nice day indoors. Now when it is sunny I feel almost guilty if I don't get out there!

YES! We would use the best toy ever available--imagination! The trailing branches and leaves of the weeping willow became fairie houses and clouds and bridal veils. We would pretend that dwarfs and ogres and monsters dwelt beneath the front porch. Some would remain beneath the porch until one of us walked by and the 'monsters' would emerge, 'attacking' us and 'killing' those that they were able to catch. Tag, hide-n-seek, red light- green light, red rover, racing one another across the field and exploring through the land on the other side of the hedge where pheasants roosted were some of our favorite activities. Does anyone remember 'Mother May I' and 'Simon Says'? Mommom would hand me my lunch through the door to eat on the porch and give snacks to my friends to eat. We would hold 'banquets' on the front porch. We had the best 'parties' and 'events' on that porch. At time that porch transformed into a hospital where we would provide care for my stuffed animals and dolls. Sometimes one of us kids would be the patient. I grew up to become an RN. We would go in the house when Mom came home from work to eat dinner as a family. After dinner we would go back outside and as darkness approached we would catch the fire-flies as the adults would sit on the porch to talk and listen to the baseball game on a transistor radio. We had the fanciest technology in our house, or so it seemed to me at the time! Sometimes I would go outside with a book and lie on the swing to read. It was so wonderful. Kids today do not know what they are missing by staying inside to play video games and surf the web. It's so sad... I had the best time as a kid, playing outdoors.

Constantly, until the age of nine. We moved, and I was not accepted by the few kids close to me in age, so I only had my younger sister to keep me company and we often did not enjoy the same activities.
