Friday’s photograph needs some explanation.
What makes a brand new pair of sneakers look like that?
And maybe this:
Come on, son. Get dirty!
Jon worked hard to make a fun place in the backyard where the boys could sink their toes (and shoes) into the sand.
I don’t mind it so much either.
This giant sandbox, which required 3 yards of sand to fill, is made where the old garden used to be. Jon finished digging the area, built a large frame, and arranged for the sand to be delivered.
The whole thing cost about $170, which is pretty cheap considering the cost of lumber and sand, delivery charges, and the enjoyment of year after year of digging, sculpting, scooping, dumping, tossing, licking (unfortunately), and just plain playing.
I believe frugal choices are options that may require some monetary output at present, but will last a lifetime and keeping giving and giving.
A good investment and GREAT family time. Thanks, Jon! You’re the BEST. We love ya.
