A Child's Hands

The weather has been gorgeous. Beautiful sunny days, a bit windy, but still great for going outside to play and watching all our bulbs that we planted in the fall coming up.

The kids have had lots of time playing in the sand table that Nick got for his birthday last October. And since most of the sand has gradually disappeared due to dumping and wind, I even consented this week to add water to the water side so that they could make a good mess.

It is amazing to watch these little hands at work. Katie carefully constructed a volcano complete with lava dripping down. Then she dug a hole through the side and made it a tunnel. Nicholas was content to make small hills for his cars and trucks to drive over, as well as just to mash and scoop and push the sand around. They are getting so big!

I'm so happy to hear that you are having great weather up there and the kids are getting to play outside more. I can tell they were having fun getting good and dirty!

We have trouble keeping sand in our sandbox, too. There's just something fun about putting it into containers and then dumping it some place else. :)
