Why We Love (?) Break-Up in Alaska

The picture definitely does not do justice to Spunky's experience today. This was taken about 2 minutes after arriving home from church. He gleefully ran out to the swingset. Next thing we knew, or heard, actually, was high-pitched screaming. I dutifully rescued my youngest from the pit of despair (mud). He was soaked from the first of three major splash-downs today. The third of which had us carrying him a 1/2 mile home nearly naked from the waist down! And the reason we LOVE break-up in Alaska??...it promises, in a deranged sort of way, warmth and green will be here in a flash.

It's coming . . . wait for it, wait for it . . .

We are getting yellow patches in the snow in our front yard. We've had a horribly muddy street for weeks, just the past week it's started to dry up.

MUD! my favorite pictures of my kids are the ones where they are covered in mud, big smiles on their faces. Who can resist mud?
