Inspired by watching the Olympic trials recently, we had our own Long Jump contest in our basement.
Maybe we didn’t quite match the jumping style or finesse of those participating in the Olympic trials, but we sure had a grand time attempting to leap through the air.
I made a Long Jump line with yarn and then we recorded the jumps with pieces of tape.
Everyone had fun trying to beat their own best jump.
It also was a great way to expend a lot of energy, without wilting in the heat outside!
I think this is my favorite picture of all the ones I took. The way Silas lives life with such gusto and joy brings a smile to my face and a reminder to me to take time to celebrate the little things each day.
