Sadie received this card for her 5th birthday in September of 1941 from her uncles Hank and Adam and soon-to-be aunt Kitty. The young lady jumps up into the air when the card is opened wide. Her brother/playmate is occupied with a fluffy dog. They both have matching shirts with blue and red stripes.
So, I searched and searched and searched for someone jumping rope among my photos. No luck! But I did find a picture of my niece Madeline jumping off the end of a slide at Brundage park in Randolph, Morris County, New Jersey. The pictures were taken 15 July 2006 when Madeline was 4 years old. And she’s dressed a lot like the kids on the card with a striped shirt and a light colored pair of skorts.
And I’m sure her Uncle Chris did some jumping to get down from the top of this jungle gym….
And there was some jumping around to get from one rocking animal to another at this park.
That’s my very short take on jumping and playing around.
