And innocence, and delightful creativity, and wondering what goes on in a toddler’s mind as he sits in his own world for 90 minutes without going anywhere or acknowledging anyone.

Such was the case yesterday, when the boys came to visit Grammie and Grandpa for the night. The Thriller wanted to build them a sandbox, but instead decided to convert a circular flower garden in the back yard into a glorious sand pit for Jake and Justin. The work paid off…we did not hear a word from Jake for an hour and a half; nor could we coax him in to eat dinner. Small price to pay. It was fun watching him.


And now he and his brother & parents are off to Myrtle Beach for a week…what will Grammie do? Ah, I know. SmartBoard training at school. Party, ja?

Happy Finkday to all!

    So much to learn, playing in the sand. I guess even little ones need a special place to just think about things. :0) Great idea.

      Thanks, Mavis! (Or, I will accept thanks on behalf of your brother-in-law.) It was definitely a hoot to watch him!
