Let's just say I was inside the farm house when this story occured. Otherwise I think I'd have had a heart attack.
Eric and the kids picked a really high branch to hang the tire swing from. The only problem? Eric is deathly afraid of heights, as are most of my kids.
Only one child is brave enough to climb that high: BETH.
Eric and my dad got this old rickety ladder out of the shed. It's an old wooden extension ladder that was rebuilt by my grandfather years ago.
Eric told me later he was seriously thinking through all the scenarios of how he would try to catch her when she fell.
I'm so glad I heard about it later. :)
