maya and her 9 year old cousin, audrey, spent all afternoon building fairy houses together. very elaborate fairy houses. with bedrooms. and bathtubs. and kitchens. and swimming pools. they told me that their friends, the fairies, would be arriving after dark, when everyone is asleep, and that they will be so overjoyed to find the new homes that have been built for them!
such is the joy of childhood!
