Windy days, tall trees, rotted roots and a really smart daughter!

Windy days, tall trees, rotted roots and a really smart daughter!

I have a whole new level of respect for my daughter.  Yesterday she was out sitting in the yard reading and writing.  She came in and told me about the ground moving every time there was a strong wind that pushed against the tree near the house.  I went to see.  Indeed it was spongy, but I thought surely the tree is so tall, there’s no way it can be dangerous, it must have long roots.

Christian on the other hand was much more concerned and cautious.   But I didn’t put any restrictions on the kids being near it or swinging on it’s swing.  We went inside and not 10 minutes later I go to the kitchen, look out the window and the tree is on the ground!

So yah, I have a new level of respect for her, for windy days and for tall trees with potentially rotted roots!
