I am so grateful for the Internet — for many reasons. And one big reason is for all of the wonderful people I have “met.” BI (before the Internet), there would be absolutely no way on earth that I could have ever met these talented, creative, and smart people! My life is so much richer because of them.
I have asked one of these e-friends, Anne Wayman, to share some of the things that she does with her teen-aged grandchildren. (She makes me wish that I lived in Sand Diego — especially since it snowed yesterday and is supposed to snow today!)
In the summer, when the Pacific Ocean around San Diego warms up, I go boogie boarding with my teen-age grandkids. Well, I provide transportation for the three of us and the three boards and some snack money. We spread out on the beach; I pass out sunscreen and they plunge in. I tend to tip-toe slowly. They start way further out than I do and come whooshing by. I catch the
gentler, nearer waves. We all have a ball for an hour or so. Then we pack up.
I’ve found outdoor activities of almost any sort are great for both me and them. We’ve tried kayaking, hiking, even whale watching. Take your grandkids outdoors! (Anne Wayman is a grandmother who also blogs at www.aboutfreelancewriting.com.)
Thanks, Anne, for sharing!
Do any of you have outdoor activities that you do with your teen-age grandchildren?
