Hosepipe… oh my goodness! You let them do that or did they think of it themselves?
That does shed a bit of a different light on it… Still, when they are all grown up, they will remember this as one of the days they had a really good time. That must be worth something. 😉
But if he’s not taken: a good home right here. A muddy channel to “swim” in, grass to decorate the knees of their pants, trees to fall out, nettles and thistles to roll in. All great boys stuff… (and girls stuff too, at least for my girls it was)
Um, this looks like more fun than I can even say! Mud puddle jumping is THE BEST. Too bad we don’t have a cleaning fairy to wave a wand and scrub down the kiddos/clothes/floors that said mud puddles leave such grubby reminders all over;)
I’d happily bid on your monkey, except I’m guessing the price would be, well, priceless, and I have three of my own right here…that are actually rolling around in the grass in what appears to be a croquet game gone bad…uh-oh– better go– I may be putting those three on the auction block before this is over!
I would gladly take him! I have 4 all 8 and under over here – but I can’t say that I am able to homeschool. He could attend a great Montessori with the rest of my lot! They would welcome another cohort easily.
