claiming our daze and our days on the prairie
well, if you do think this is just sand, you might be surprised. micah has been begging to make booby traps ever since watching home alone. he and i announced to naomi that we were going to make a booby trap and she thought we meant something for me to wear…uh, no.
first we dug the hole…
then spread the blanket over the hole…securing the edges with wet sand and sprinkling dry sand on top,
then if you know it is a booby trap and you want it to be more fun, you can jump in. if you don’t know it is a booby trap, then you just walk on what you think is sand and either way you will fall in.
hee hee hee, booby trap!
and since we buried half of a tire in part of the sandbox, eliza was occupied. good thing.
