It was fairly cool this afternoon (only in the 90's!) so Rachel went out to play in the sandbox. After ten minutes or so she came in hollering "Mom! Come see my sandcastles!" So I went out to take a look.
It seems that the yard sprinkler had turned our boring, dry sand into perfect sandcastle consistency. And Rachel knew just what to do.
She dug and packed, perfectly content.
And while she worked, she told me her sandcastle plans.
Then she found a stick and incorporated it in her decorations.
