A Week of Playgrounds
Violet is no better, she is an even more amazing climber than Pen was at her age and she firmly believes I am ruining all her fun every time I remove her from somewhere too high or dangerous. I very much enjoyed it when at one playground Penelope played Mike Mulligan and the Steam Shovel for about an hour in the sandbox. Violet sat close to her and filled her bucket over and over again and I had the rare experience of nearly an hour of complete peace sitting in the sun on a beautiful day.
We spent a couple hours at a playground every morning, and brought our lunch with us most days. It's such a simple, easy way to make a day, or a week special. I think we will do another playground week when the weather is fine again, but I'm pretty sure we won't see that for a long, long time.
