There are some days at Seedlings when we get to witness some amazing, completely child-led events. Sometimes it’s the fort to beat all forts, and other times it’s a simple interaction between young children that blows you away.

On this particular day, I was roaming the playground with a camera and I came across two young boys playing with a pile of sand and a plastic animal menagerie.

To everyone (including Jack and Gavin) this was just another day in late November. But to me it was the first time I saw the conflict resolution skills we talk about all the time in action.
