It's beginning to feel like spring; I even bought flowers to plant, but am waiting to be sure we are past dipping below freezing at night. I leave for San Diego this week; I will be guaranteed spring there.
While I was attempting to do some much needed catch up work this morning, the kids went right out to play. JD has several loads of dirt dumped to build up a hill behind the gun range area. Apparently, there was a lot of clay in the dirt because the kids have been building things out of it.
Some were fine and just made creations like Tori's turtle -
Others all but wallowed in it. By the time we put an end to their "fun", I had lots of people and clothes that looked like these -
Julia and Selah were the worst offenders and won the job of beating the huge clay chunks off their boots. Julia had even packed it in two backpacks.
Never a dull minute; I had to take a serious break from my work to bathe children and beat and wash clothes. The front porch still resembles the above mitten picture.
