It's the simple things . . . .

We've had a little bit of a reprieve with the weather lately. Temperatures are only hitting in the low to mid 90s, and it feels practically cool compared to the 100+ days we've had.

My children play outside quite a lot, usually in the clubhouse or on the swingset. Lately though, they've discovered the joy of mud puddles. Yesterday when they went out to play with the water hose, they ended up filling a hole (created by those blasted canines) and turning it into "The Big Muddy." Oh, dear heavens. They played in the mud, muddy water, and grass clippings for almost two hours. Their only tools were a trowel, a garden rake (with a broken tine), and a skateboard.

I love it when they do things like this! In what seems to be an age of technology overload, it's wonderful to see them enjoying the simple things.
