The Boys of Spring!

Boys are found everywhere - on top of, underneath, inside of, climbing on, swinging from, running around or jumping to.  Mothers love them, little girls hate them, older sisters and brothers tolerate them, adults ignore them and Heaven protects them.  A boy is Truth with dirt on its face, Beauty with a cut on its finger, Wisdom with bubble gum in its hair and the Hope of the future with a frog in its pocket.  ~ Alan Beck

I was truly blessed growing up to have the parents I did!  I was given the opportunity to be a child!  I made mud pies, collected bugs, and was permitted to use my imagination.  We never sat in front of a television (they didn't have such things back then... Hahaha!) ... we played outside!!!  I now have two little boys and I am thankful for their spirit and love for the outdoors.  I think Spring is one of the most magical times with a child!  Their sense of discovery becomes two-fold (if not more)!  They discover those bugs, they see the snow melt and the grass turn green, and no matter what ... they find the water and MUD!!  I think every kid should be allowed to play in the mud!!  Boys ... certainly mine, have an affinity to water and mud!  How else are you going to damn off the spring melt!
