What a mess! Today we had some friends over to play, and like always, the kids ended up in the yard. It hadn't been raining for the past couple of days, so it was mostly dry in the yard. It was muddy but not too muddy until the boys found a bucket filled with a week's worth of rain. They dumped it into the hole the kids have been digging for weeks. That is when we had a real big mud pie. The boys had a great time and they got so deliciously muddy. Andrew kept saying "poop" no matter how I tried to explain that it was just dirt with lots of water, and that is called mud. He didn't believe me. He still thought he was playing in "poop".
Oh, what will they do when we finish the side yard this summer and there's no more exposed dirt? Maybe we will have to add a dirt/sand box to the side yard. --emily
