Oops, Making New Friends

Click on image to enlarge

It’s interesting to observe children meeting other children. We went down to our beach umbrella that we had rented and set up our various implements such as beach chairs, sand toys, towels, bottles of water, puzzle books, mystery books, etc. A family of five set their beach implements up at the umbrella next to us. One of the twin girls came over to Jas and said, all in one long breath, “My name is Sarah, and that is my twin sister Jane and we are six and our little sister is four and our mommy and daddy brought us here to play in the sand and we are staying at this hotel, are you? What’s your name?” “Jas” replied Jas. “Oh, Bye!” said Sarah and off she went to tell her family Jas’s name. Jas looked at me with a serious look on her face and said “That’s Sarah, she’s my friend.” Wow, my head was spinning watching it all. And by the end of the day Jas had about seven other friends and knew the story of each and every person who had rented umbrellas that day. She even told us that the man who was walking up and down the beach all afternoon had lost his car keys that morning in the surf because he had them on a black key fob in his bathing suit pocket and a big wave knocked him down, sweeping his keys away in a torrent of rushing salt water. That kid could work for the CIA.

    tiny suggestion: when you get home, dupe these vacation photos and store them somewhere away from floods and other disasters. It'll be geat fun when Ms Jas looks back and remembers what a fun time she had with gwannma at the shore.
