D1 and D2 in the Laughing Labyrinth

Children at play Two of my favorite pilgrims make their first visit to the Laughing Labyrinth.the Souza children often visit the Prairie Labyrinth uncovering treasures, moving them around, noting the growth through the seasons, and taking in nature.  I leave objects for them and wait to hear about their adventures, which the family share freely.  This night D1 and D2 playfully ran the Laughing Labyrinth, and with minimal guidance, made their way to the center simply by letting themselves follow the path. Would that we adults did the same!  Then, they climbed the tree and followed the path back out.
