When I was a kid, I really did play outside all the time that it was permissible to be outside. When it rained, I played inside until it stopped raining. In the winter, I waited impatiently for the temp to get above freezing so I could go play outside. this involved bi-hourly trips out to the thermometer on the clothesline pole to check for the mercury to reach that vaunted height. Also, sometimes a little judicious breathing on the thermometer to help the weather..... I was healthier as a kid than I have ever been since.
