I love our trampoline. So do the kids. It has been such a good investment. It allows the children to burn off excess energy the healthy way. It’s not uncommon at the moment for all five kids to be jumping on the trampoline together, which is just beautiful to see them all interacting and playing with one another. OK, so they don’t do it perfectly, and there’s normally some crying from someone, but this is a learning opportunity also. Siblings force each other to develop patience, kindness, respect, self control, long suffering and the list goes on…
The other day Trent was being delightful on the trampoline learning some new moves. He was so proud of them, unashamedly so. “Oh wow, did you see that? Did you get a photo?” “Oh man, that was AWEsome.” Huge giggles. “Oh man, I’m getting so GOOD!” There’s no need for humility when you are five and jump on the trampoline like a boss.
Before long Trent was no longer alone. He was joined by his younger brother who has a love of nudity.
Do you get good value out of a trampoline? Have you ever replaced the netting and cushion covers? Where did you source it? (Needing help here people – and SOON! My heart has been palpitating)
