Rejuvenating the outdoors

A while back I posted this about how simply moving a toy can make all the difference in renewing it's purpose. Well, I was surprised yesterday at something else. We had a volunteer day on Saturday where we had managed to get community members to come and spend 4 hours bettering our yard; part of this included adding a new layer of sand to our depleting supply.

This is bright, white, playground sand. It is fabulous! It took us 2 and a half hours to get it all moved into the area and raked across and all, but it was worth it. It was even more so when I walked out an literally saw children rolling in it! They were burying themselves in it and sitting in it and so much more. I think every child was in the sandbox at the same time.

So, in conclusion, I have determined that there is a whole new way to rejuvenate the area: add new sand

Of course this was an expensive way to rejuvenate (over $1000 for the entire area), but yesterday morning made it all worth every cent.
