I like playing outside. Especially in the summer, when the weather is nice and warm. I like riding my BMX bike, shooting paper arrows and climbing in trees. Sometimes the boys who live down the street and I go look for frogs behind the dike or we play with plastic boats in the ditch.
I like the ditch, in winter its good for ice skating, and in summer you can play near the water and you can see the fish. We often try to climb over the bridge from the outside. It’s a little scary, but so far I’ve never fallen into the water. You can also try to catch some fish, I thought I wanted to fish for a while, but it turned out it is not as much fun as it looks.
Another thing I like to do is build huts with the boys from school. It’s especially fun to build traps and climb the lookout tower, but it’s hard not to fall into the traps or out of the trees. At least it is for me. Sometimes we all hang out at the playground and try to climb on top of all the attractions. I’m better at that than the building huts stuff.
When the weather is bad there’s still lost of fun things to do inside. I love playing with lego and with cars, especially on a race track. Building things is always a lot of fun. A while back me and the boy next door built our own robot. It looked really good. He has boxes full of cars and other cool toys in his room. I think he has every cool toy there is. I’m a little jealous.
I do have some girl friends from school, but they never want to do anything fun. They want to play with their barbies or play make believe. Some like boardgames or to hop, which is cool, but I usually like it better to play with the boys. The girls do not understand and I cannot explain it to them, because I don’t think they would like it if I told them how most girls play is boring.
Mum tells me that when I get older I won’t feel like playing all the time anymore. I hope she’s wrong, because I want to keep playing forever.
