Photo Story Friday: King Of The Hill Means Crap

There it was, begging to be climbed and mastered.  All three girls looked at each other, then at the pile hill and accepted the challenge that it held.  As one they took off at a dead run, IS reached it first and dug her hands in creating little avalanches as she scrambled up to the top, victorious!  Yes, King of the Hill!!!!


On her toes ran her older sister KN who very quickly joined her sister in a victory dance at the top of the hill.


Not to be out done the little one tried with all her might to reach the top and share in the victory dance with her older siblings, but alas the fine sand had fallen so much that she just couldn't dig her feet in  So, using her hands she tried again to scale the side, only to fall on her face in the dirt.
She called for mom to come and help, but mom was too busy snapping pictures to come immediately, so she climbed on hands and knees all the way up, covering her pants, shirt and hands with dirt.  Reaching the top she turned, dusted off her hands and cheered in triumph!


"Um, Heidi,"  Mom hears her sister say from behind her.  "I don't think they should be playing in that.  That's sludge from the sewage plant."

Oh no, sludge from the sewage plant?? If it were really germy, it would smell right? So they were probably OK...

Uh Oh! Climbing is fun, but it's time to get down off the pile/hill, now, especially if it's from the sewage plant!
They're awesome, including that sky, & deserved the snaps to capture these beloved moments. And, you tell a great story!

Thanks so much for the kind comments you left. I, too, appreciate them very much!

I loved king of the hill when I was a kid. In winter certain parking lots would get snow piled up by the snow plow to amazing heights. Those were the best hills to lord it over.
