the games they play

{Every child should have mud pies, grasshoppers, water bugs, tadpoles, frogs, mud turtles, elderberries, wild strawberries, acorns, chestnuts, trees to climb. Brooks to wade, water lilies, woodchucks, bats, bees, butterflies, various animals to pet, hayfields, pine-cones, rocks to roll, sand, snakes, huckleberries and hornets; and any child who has been deprived of these has been deprived of the best part of education.} Luther Burbank

we had kitchens and horse havens in our backyard this morning.

i snuck this picture of ash and ian busy in their kitchen through the slats of our fence.

and avery made a haven for her horses up on top of our hill.

Mud pies are the best - and of course horse haven as well.
