Beach Fun

There is nothing so natural than kids and the beach!  We took my son up to the ocean for the first time in a few years (we do live in a landlocked province, so it’s not entirely our fault), and he immediately started playing in the mud,looking for shells and visiting with other kids.  I heard them yelling to each other about what they’d found in tide pools and about the fun of having mud between their toes!

He learned about getting stuck in the mud, about tides and about beach creatures – fish, birds and an abundance of sea life.  I defy anyone to tell me that wasn’t education!

He ran and ran and ran, threw handfuls of mud, got his boots and the rest of him all wet and cried when it was time to go home.  He went right to sleep when it was bedtime, actually asked for bedtime!

A perfect afternoon!
