My first ever My Sunday Photo – The Joys of Dirt
I took this photo on our afternoon visit to the local park, today. Hannah had the place to herself for most of the time that we were there, and she chose to spend a large part of that time playing in the wood chips. Today, she truly discovered the joys of dirt!
Recent rain meant that it was pretty damp below the surface of the woodchips. Hannah soon found that it was fun to play with both the wood and the dirt below it.
As our time in the playground came to an end, we were briefly joined by another little girl. She was about 5 years old. She took an instant liking to Hannah, and Hannah was, as always, infatuated by this older girl. They played together for a little while. mostly on the equipment. Hannah studied her every move. She even nearly followed her over the edge of the fireman’s pole!
It reminded me what childhood is all about – that dirt washes off, but experiences last a lifetime!
