Mud Bath

Fact of life at the Buckaroo home~ boys need outside projects and the best ones involve mud. That is hard for me at times because, well, I have this idealistic life set in my head where the boys are clean and well put together at all times. Boy am I getting an education on how little boys tick. I give in, they are only little once and I want them to be fearless adventurers. So, when Little Buckaroo thinks he wants to make an island and he needs a shovel, I go with him to the barn to get him one. And, this is how things go from there.

I have Lake Buckaroo in my yard. They worked hard!

Preparing to have a mudfight, let's just say that Lucky the dog, was again not lucky on this day. Neither was anything that came in a 15 foot radius of the "lake". I have washed more muddy clothes in the past week and the pile is still growing.

After the 3rd bath for the day, I do get a glimpse of my idealistic, clean perfect world.

And then it rains again.

Headed to the mudroom to put on another load of clothes,

What an adventureous Mom you have become as a "boy Mama." Those boys will remember the MUD all their lives and that you allowed them to enjoy it. I love each picture and especially the last one!

When does the Farmers' Market begin? Just wondering...
