Thomas played with some long-time friends last week. They are also homeschoolers. They live next to a creek. The kids were all filthy! What is it about a creek and kids? Instant fun -- hours of fun.
Thomas had already hosed off before I saw him. He only had mud remaining on his face. His clothes were soaked.
This was a play date that will stay with him forever. He talked about it all weekend. He even asked this question:
"Mom, would you and dad consider relocating? And if you would, could we please buy a house next to a creek?"
I wish we could. I love to let him play, explore and get filthy dirty. That's what makes a happy child.
