Mud, Mud every where! Wow, we are surrounded by mud! Spring must really be near. To traverse our road you almost need to be a professional mud bogger (I'm not exaggerating)!
The boys went out this afternoon to slip and slide in the mud. They called me out about half an hour later, all excitement. They had found a few shoots of green in my flower gardens.
Jacob said to me, "Isn't it amazing mom!"
To that I readily agreed, "truly amazing."
Later, when Joel looked out the window he announced that the boys were playing in the miniature pond that surrounds their swing set. They were taking turns laying on their tummy's on the swings and kicking back and forth through the muddy water. At one point, Caleb grabbed up a handful of mud. For a moment I worried he might launch it at one of his brothers. Fortunately he relinquished it. He decided to wash his hands in the puddle and then use his pants for a towel. Needless to say, when my mud buddies came in the house they were in need of showers!
