temporarily mislaid

There is a school not far from where I live. It has a towering structure dominating the playground area that I have looked up at it with some misgiving.
Until yesterday.
Yesterday I watched my grandchildren climb it.
Climb it and hang from it and slide down it and stand on it and balance and swing and drop from it.
My grandson's face was alight with joy.
My granddaughter clung like a little tree frog.
I think I have regained something I had temporarily mislaid.
