Do you need sleds and snow to sled?

Nope! Yesterday morning, when we stopped for a school break, we observed that workmen were putting new washers and dryers in the laundromat. Guess what those came in? HUGE boxes. I suggested to Caleb that he go ask the man outside if he could have the boxes once unloaded. Caleb and his friend have no qualms about dumpster diving so it was not very many minutes before Caleb came back in saying that he didn’t need to ask as there were already several boxes in the dumpster that they were pulling out! This mama could see though that there were bigger boxes coming due to some double stackers so I went and asked. The man was more than happy to oblige but these were going to the laundromat along the way.

Folks here are SO kind. Seeing the boys dragging one of the huge boxes back here they transported the rest of them in the back of their truck. SO appreciated. (Richard was away so I had no means of helping.) What fun was had by all the kids in our general vicinity yesterday. It didn’t take the boys long to realize that the flattened boxes make great sleds. The fun has continued today.

Just goes to show that toys don’t have to be expensive and imagination is a great thing. Here is the Eiffel Tower!

Take care,

Liz

    Give a kid a cardboard box and the imagination goes wild! What fun.
