Landmark 9 (Special Outdoor Place)
What is it about hiding behind, between, and underneath trees, that is so magical? Heart-filling laughter erupts from behind trunks, seconds before joy-filled faces pop out. No matter the weather, hide and seek is always a thrill! Every season presents its own expansion, addition, and challenge to this simple game. The surprises and togetherness of this game, in this place, makes us all the more grateful to have this place to play. Our lungs fill with the freshest of air as we stay as quiet as we can, crouched between branches. We repeat this game over and over. Many times during the same day, many times each week, in all of our favourite play places. There is so much value in this social play, undertaken beneath the open sky and repeated between friends. We follow a structure and make it our own, using language (and quiet!) to create and maintain a deep connection to one another.
