Sometimes it takes some creativity to give our kids some little pleasures very common back home. My kids love to dig in the dirt, much to my dismay. I began thinking about how I could get them some sort of sandbox. I really thought this would turn out to be another one of my hairbrained crazy ideas, but it worked. Steve went to a lot where they sell sand to make cement. He bought some, and I sifted it to remove all rocks and debris. I used two inflatable pools we bought in the States as sandboxes. For Valentine's day, we gave the kids their "sandboxes". It is dry season right now, so you can see there is a lot of dust in our back yard. But the kids don't care. They sit on their little stools and play away!

Caleb thought his pail and shovel were the coolest gifts ever.
