claiming our daze and our days on the prairie
really, i don’t know who had more fun, the children who found the creek full of water, or me who delighted in having a camera along…early evening sun and water and children…ahhhh.
after a spontaneous decision to eat leftovers and fresh bread together at the park, there was spontaneous creek bottom play…was abby indeed the first one in?
i love watching children involved in this level of freedom, waiting for what they will choose to do with a wide and shallow water-road, seeing a different side of them…
noticing evidence of a child’s work, appreciating there is a place to rest, but choosing to go home instead…grateful knowing that the only thing needed is to clean bodies and clothes.
