My teenager looked at this painting and said, "Ah, too bad kids don't play like that anymore."  Don't they?

That's sad, those old games, making a baking soda volcano, blanket forts, tag (right, like running around after each other, why would we do that!) and all those things we grew up with and that I made sure my kids at least had a chance to experience once - are those too old fashioned now? 

I know there are parents who pass down those unplugged traditions, I wish more did. I should write a book - Unplugged: 100 games for kids - no batteries needed!  I'll add that to my to do list! Well, first I will research what books are already out there - that's the first step in writing a non-fiction book!

I love reading the blog Soule Mama - because that's one family after my own nostalgic heart!

  1. Hi Heather!

    I found your blog through The Sketchables blog. This is a great illustration. Ahhh, the simple life.

    I agree wholeheartedly about unplugged living and the simply. And yes, Soule Mama is a great blog.

    If you write that book, let me know, I'd love to contribute to it! :)
