They used old baling twine they had gathered and braided a 50’-75’ rope. One end was tied to a nearby tree, and they each took turns holding the other end at varying heights. The center of the rope was over the trampoline. A new high jumping event had just been created.
They challenged each other to see who could jump the highest. I think Dad or Jared reached the highest marks just because they were the biggest kids involved. Everyone jumped higher than they thought possible.
Some did tricks. Others started doing somersaults and flips over the rope. The kids had a blast - A great way to spend the spring afternoon.
