Three Indian Princesses live in my mountain holler.
You can see their tee-pees through the leaves.
Each Princess has her very own tee-pee-
this helps ensure peace reigns.
The Princesses move frequently. Sometimes they live in the woods below Granny's house, sometimes in the woods behind Granny's house, and sometimes near Princess 2's home territory by the creek.
Sometimes the Princesses can be seen raiding Pap's garden for a mid-day snack of raw green beans.
Sometimes the Princesses lie in their tee-pees
and craft, write, or dream.
I'm glad the girls have such wonderful imaginations. It keeps them busy being outdoors enjoying nature and each others company. They don't realize it-but they're making memories that will last a lifetime.
Tipper and Paul
When Paul and I were little we liked to play outside too, on the day the picture was taken it must have been Daniel Boone. We also liked to play- we each had a team full of (imaginary) people and we competed against each other. We weren't really competitive, the pretense of what happened as we went along was the fun part. I'm sure we even took turns on who actually won. Although, I do recall we often fought over who's team Nolan Ryan was going to be on.
Do you have a memory about the pretend games of your childhood? I'd love to hear about it-please leave me a comment.
