I think kids inherently love nature and running water. In early fall my nephew Quincy, age 3, and I were together at the time I had a project due involving about thirty table centerpieces so Andre, Quincy and I were on a mission. “Collect as many flowers as you can find!, ” I instructed. They were great hunters! The project was a success.
The next time I saw Quincy was at our family Thanksgiving, soon after he saw me he said, “Come on Tia Marce (Tia means Aunt in Spanish) let’s go get flowers.” I thought how cute, he knows just who to ask to collect flowers, then I remembered what we did the last time we were together! So, out we went. I was thinking how many flowers will we actually find on November 23rd? You might be surprised…tomorrow I will reveal that. For now we stop. Excited that there is water coming out of this box in the ground and it never stops!
