Y4 - 180/365: The Sandbox
We've been saying for some time now that we wanted Ryan to have a little sand pit this year. Then recently one of Matt's work-mates brought in a gently-used pink hippo sand pit formerly belonging to their grandchild. We considered just using this one until we spotted sandpits in Toys R Us last weekend. For less than £20 we found a blue turtle and a few bags of play sand. We finally had the opportunity tonight after work to check it out with Ryan.
He wasn't sure about standing in the sand at first, but quickly got stuck in and began pouring.
As he played happily, I took the time to wander down into the garden and get a shot of the house with the newly installed solar panels. We think they really take the authentic feel away from the cottage, but hopefully will save us a bit of money when it comes to electric.
In the meantime, Ryan appears happy as long as he's able to play in his new sand pit.
After two and a half years in a long-distance relationship, I packed my life of 29 years into 21 boxes and moved to England to marry and be with my husband, Matt. Now I'm reveling in the youth of my 30s in Great Britain, supply-teaching in primary schools near Birmingham and enjoying newlywed life, being a mommy, and all the surprises they bring!
