How Those Country Kids Play

They dig in the dirt. There's a big hole out in this field now after an afternoon of hard digging by the kiddie crew.

Because of one incident yesterday when the toilet mysteriously overflowed after being sluggish for a time, we were all (3 little girls and Nanaw) in a circle around the toilet today, after Beans had lingered on the seat for what seemed like a full half hour and afterwards needing quite a bit of wiping, to make sure there wouldn't be another flood. A functioning toilet is a major deal around this house. And besides, we're easily entertained.

This evening Jerri and Bubbie went to a cookout at one (there only being 2) of the neighbors but the girls got cold and came back, so I got all the little girls into a warm bath, lined them up in there to wash 3 dirty little heads (after all that digging ya know), then dressed them all in Zach's t-shirts. After bowls of popcorn and hot chocolate, they settled down on the couch to wait for Jerri and Bubbie; except for Beans, she crashed as soon as she climbed into my lap for a few minutes of snuggling.

They just picked them up so Nanaw is now relaxing with a cup of coffee.

What is better than a row of clean, wet little kids, then eating popcorn? OK, when they go home and you're relaxing, but the whole day had to be fun!
