Rain = mud = happy children

"In the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt" - Margaret Atwood

I was on my way into town to meet Peter and just wanted to say good-bye to the kids and this is the scene I found.
They were having so much fun that I had to take a photo of the happy, muddy little group of children..... At least 2 of them had the foresight to wear raincoats... But, I think hooded coveralls might have offered more protection. Bathtime became a 2 part process: first in the shower to get rid of the worst of the mud and then into the bathtub to finish off the ablutions. I missed this altogether because by then I had done a runner :) Gold stars to Sirpa and Teemu who were babysitting for us and who had to clean up my little people.
