When The Sand Crumbles?
Today's post is perfect for a Nostalgic Wordless Wednesday... ALTHOUGH you know I have to add some dialogue.
I took this picture last summer, before Minecraft invaded our home, when the boys were still constructing sandcastles in the backyard with real materials. It's a little depressing when you consider the hours my younger sons waste clicking blocks of squares on a video game to build virtual kingdoms.
I remind myself that this too will pass and soon the snow will give way to a green yard. A yard full of shimmering blades of grass beckoning us outside into the sunlight. A yard promising hours of outdoor play and a land where pixelated squares don't lure young boys inside.
A girl can dream, can't she?
What do you long for during the winter months?
