Carolina's Rock Garden

Carolina watering her plant (a weed)
I'm outside in our back garden area watching Carolina play.  She doesn't need much to play; the watering can from her bath toys, the water from the back of her tricycle and the rocks and dirt.  She could play for hours out there.

I grew up playing outside unsupervised.  I made mud pies, played tag, went to the store and walked around the neighborhood with my friends.  Times have changed, but it makes me want to instill in her and Nico the imagination and creativity spurred on by playing with simple things on your own or with a friend.

I recently read this quote.  It's something to think about.

"We want to give our children the things we didn't have,
 but don't forget to give them the things we did have."
