hubs taught Yakee to look for crabs (those tiny white ones that make holes in the sand) and Yamee loved trying to squash them
we often forget (thankfully, I didn't) that it's easy to amuse the kids... just leave them somewhere they can explore and build
and I fully understood why a sandbox is pedagogically necessary in Waldorf schools when I observed them and just let them be
Yamee expresses concentration with his lips
and this is the moment when he started a fascination with sand on his body
and Yakee... well, he's always loved the beach
Since the place was clean, the staff friendly, the restaurant food was great (for the money)... and they had cable TV, it seems like the perfect place to just let kids enjoy an unspoiled beach. Of course, where sand goes, Boracay's is still the finest.... but the area is also super commercialized already.
So, someday, I want to go back and just let my sons frolic in Guimaras beaches. Maybe they can go swimming naked again, haha, at Guisi beach.
