Michelle's on a Mission

My neighbor runs a home based Day Care. One of the activities she has her charges do for physical activity is run around a little track in her backyard.

While the 4 and 5 year old boys were running around the track, this little 2 year old was making the rounds with her pink wagon. I just thought she looked so precious lugging a wagon full of toys around the track not caring if the boys were running circles past her. This is what determination in a two year old looks like.

This brings back fond memories of my daughter pulling her wagon and pushing her wheel barrow at that age. It is beautifully done and definitely has that 'on a mission' feel to it.
