sand.














Seriously-- the other day, my husband was thinking that the sand box was a big waste of time and money. Not knowing this, I had begun thinking that the sand box area needed a good cleaning and should be replenished with fresh sand. Fortunately, we had bags left over from when we first set it all up.

So
with the sweat of my husband's brow and the vision of my mind's eye, the sand box area has been restored. Great. The kiddos have been playing outside pretty much everyday and the sand box is getting lots of playtime. I had thought we might have to dump last year's sand out, but since we kept it covered fairly well over the winter, and after adding 3 more bags of sand, it's looking pretty good.

Now my biggest problem is: How do I keep the sand out of my kid's pockets and out of my house? Ugh.

Cute pictures. I found a stand up sandbox on the side of the road. Never looked used.

I washed it and we put all knds of things in. Oatmeal, sand, cereal, dirt, rocks.
