Lemons To Lemonade

I made the mistake of forgetting to cover the kids’ sandbox on a rainy day, and it turned into a wading pool with sand. As discouraging as that was to G when I told him, we made a game out of shoveling the water out of the sandbox. We tried to see who could dig a bigger hole and shovel out the water the fastest. G had the bigger hole, but I easily shoveled more water than him, so it was a tie.

We got most of the water out, so the sun should evaporate the rest in the next week or so. At first, I thought the flooded sandbox was disastrous, but it made the whole beach experience a lot more real. I guess it’s one of those situations of turning lemons into lemonade.

    Oh yes. We have experienced the rain in our sand box fiasco. I remember how upset my mother was. But my 3 brothers and I thought the idea of more mess was perhaps the coolest thing ever. It turned out to be a lot of fun. 🙂
