I borrowed this image from the web, but it fits my afternoon Thursday.
My 6 year old loves the mud. She loves the sound it makes as her boots move through it. She loves the feel of it as her boot nearly gets stuck in it. She loves how it looks on her boots and snowpants. She takes every opportunity she gets to walk through it. Luckily her dad is a logger in the springtime in northern Wisconsin. It is not spring...it is a different season, mud season!
