Running around--non-stop play

First you run, then you jump
Did we really come home right after school, run out and play until sundown? Did we really spend full days on the weekend riding a bike, playing ball, tag, ringoleavio or some other game that put us in an aerobic state for hours on end?

What incredible energy kids have. Essentially you run till you drop. Not only that, this activity was the "prime directive," it was what life was about.

There were so many cool games that required no supervision, just a bunch of kids and some time to play. We've listed a few. Our hopes are that this section will be particularly embellished by your stories and memories.
