“Little girls with dreams become women with vision.” – Unknown
I have two little girls that love to play make-believe games. They have huge imaginations that never cease to amaze me. They sing and dance and laugh and it makes me smile every time I hear them playing this way.
I’m a huge believer in the power of imaginative play and how it can help kids work through their problems, dream and learn. I’ve seen Bella grow so much in her speech and language through the work that her developmental assistants have done just playing silly games with her. I’ve grown to know Lacey in a way that I don’t know I could have otherwise by watching the things she draws and makes.
My biggest hope for them is that they grow up continuing to dream and play which will lead them to find their gift. William Shakespeare said “The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away.” I don’t think there could be a truer path to finding happiness.
“Courage, sacrifice, determination, commitment, toughness, heart, talent, guts. That’s what little girls are made of; the heck with sugar and spice.” – Bethany Hamilton
Here’s a few more of the amazing little girls I’ve photographed. Dream big girls, the world is at your feet!
