It's that time of year again, when we start doing a little early planting.....and you know what that means...
As soon as Ben cranks the tractor to till up the first bit of ground, the kids are right behind him barefoot, hose pipe in hand, ready for that first bit of soft mud! Somehow this year the wait was extra hard, maybe it was that they were stuck inside more (with me on bed rest), but they asked (nagged!) almost everyday about when the garden needed to be tilled up. It's tradition! They look forward to that "good mud" all year long.
They did-it-up right! They made up for that long winter stuck inside!
This was a little over a week ago, now they have started
nagging asking about the first dip in the creek. That swimming hole is just calling for them! They got to play in the water a little last week at camp, but it wasn't their swimming hole. I guess we will have to put little Claire in her sling and take a walk down to the creek soon.
I love that they love and look forward to all of our silly family traditions. And I love that there are more little ones coming along to enjoy them with. I think I enjoy taking pictures of these muddy little critters as much as they enjoy getting muddy!
Happy Saturday friends! ~xo, Sam
