Little T goes to a small play-school/nursery here in our little village by the sea. It’s a lovely play school and when the weather is good, they take out the kids for some fun in the sun and the outdoors. They also have their own little vegetable garden where the little ones learn how to plant and care for their vegetables and flowers. And last Wednesday, that’s exactly what they did.
There’s little T having fun with her wheelbarrow.

And one of the reasons that makes this play-school special is that just below, is what makes up a child’s paradise, complete with a make-shift bridge made up of a fallen tree and a tire swing over a body of water.

The kids had so much fun taking turns in the tire-swing, there’s little T with one of the lovely play-assistants in the nursery. One little boy tugged on my trousers and whispered “If you shut your eyes, it’s like riding a roller coaster!” He looked barely two-years-old and I wondered “Does he even know what it feels like to ride a roller coaster?” And then remembered how powerful a child’s imagination is. Indeed, it must have felt exactly like riding a roller coaster.
Looking at these photos I am affirmed that we made the right decision in raising our child in the country, though admittedly, time and again, I miss the city. But this is the place where our daughter makes magical memories every single day.
