I love rain. I really do. As a kid I would hunker down on our very old porch & tuck into a good book while it rained. If I wasn’t doing that, I was finding puddles a la the Morton saltbox girl with my brothers. (We all had matching yellow slickers and hats.) But really. Enough. Cue The Happy Dance that the sun was shining yesterday and we haven’t had any rain (yet) today.
Your kids love the rain, too. They love that the playground is a mud pit. As in boot sucking mud that most think is simply hilarious. I’m sure you do too because you’re enjoying all the laundry. Lots of digging, moving mud and water, sweeping, stomping and jumping. We did explore the creek this week, and as a result have made a minor creek rule: we may wade but we may not swim.
I learned yesterday that Muddy Boots was a contender for the name of our school. How marvelously apropos.
