Remind me why it was that I wanted to move to the country?
They don't have mud puddles and clay fields in the city. I rather enjoyed not having to clean up these disasters the last few years.
But in all fairness, I also enjoy seeing how much fun the kids can have with a bit of water and dirt ... just wish they would stick to the "bit" part instead of getting stuck out in the field so that they have to drag mom out to help. The only thing mom could help with was to tell her to run to the house in her bare feet ... even Rob had trouble digging the boots out later on.
Ah ... if only water were free then I wouldn't care how often they have to wash their dirty coats, splash pants and boots.
