Field trip day!!! Today we went to the children’s museum and a gentle reminder was painted brightly upon the wall.
We don’t stop playing because we get old,
We get old because we stop playing.
It’s a quote that stuck with me throughout the day. As adults we sometimes forget to stop and enjoy the day and play. I’m one of the lucky ones, I get to play everyday and go on adventures with forty of the most imaginative kids I know. Just this week I was an archeologist that went on a dinosaur hunt, riding a horse, swimming through a river, trudging through mud , climbing up a rope to the cave on top of a tall mountain, …. a dinosaur. RUN!!! Whew we made it! I was a rockstar and played the drums in the block area belting out the Lego tune Everything is Awesome. I was a patient that had my heart checked, a bandaid placed over my ouchies, and I even got a shot, the best kind it didn’t hurt and my doctors were adorable. I was an architect that helped design a zoo filled with animals that needed to be fed and taken care of. I even got to be a firefighter, police officer, chef, and mail carrier. I know as grown ups our days are busy but if you ever get a free moment, PLAY !! You will laugh, you will smile, you will have fun, you will stay young.
