A Sandpit of his Own

One thing we ahve always had in outdooor play for our children has been a sandpit. In our moves to various homes one fo the first things to be installed in the home was the trampoline, swings and the construction of a sandpit.

We have had arious constructions and sizes filled with many meters of sand and the chidlren have had many hours of play with trucks, sandtoys and  building of villages, castles and the never ending volcanao eruption. Tea parties ahve been enjoyed by fairies and  small girls.
However you know as well as I that mud is a big attraction to children and so one day Corbyn obviously having had enough of the 'regulation' sandpit, created his own with some lovely thick clay soil. (Yes the clothes were a trifle harder to clean than normal.) Taking it form one side of the driveway  to the other, in order to create this lovely little construction site.
Obviously he is the son of a civil engineer!!
He was most engrossed in this for a few days just digging up the dirt he had transported over the driveway , using the loader to tip in to the dump truck and then dumping out onto another part of the new sand pit pile.

Needless to say it is still waiting for him to come back to when he is ready for some more digging and shifting.  Of course the driveway does not look as neat and tidy to drive up to the house now as it did before, but that is no way as important as the joy and contentment of our little construction boy and his machines now is it?
Blessings to you and your homes,
