We continue to enjoy walking around campus and have identified some favorite spots. There's "The Hill" in front of the library, which the kids already knew about, from previous campus visits, and though it's not much more than a little bump, they still love to roll down and run around it. Every time we walk to or from BJ's preschool, we pass a lovely fountain, and I've taken to making sure that I have at least two coins in my pocket for these trips.
Here are the kids paying the two penny toll and making their wishes:
They don't believe that saying a wish aloud makes it less likely to come true -- in fact, they shout out their wishes for all to hear. Recent wishes include: an aquarium with jellyfish (BJ), a unicorn (BB), a fountain (BJ), and a dog (BB). Of such things are the magic of childhood made, and if you ask me it's a steal at only two cents. Even if it adds up to a dime or more a week!
