Magoo and his buddy, N, had wanted to build a big damn in the puddles in back of the school yesterday. It started sprinkling so I made them come home. By the time we got back, the sprinkling had stopped. There was plenty of water in the sidewalks - so they decided to build their dam out front and wrangled a couple older boys to help.
Here's N laying out the sticks.
They played outside until they gathered all the stray sticks and were soaked through. Then we headed in to warm up.
Still, it was good to be outside - to be able to watch them run and jump and plot and plan. And this muddy, ucky melt is always the first sign of Spring for me.
