The snow has melted now and the lake has grown even bigger. The kids leave for school in the morning and can't wait to get back home to go play in it. Their fear is that it will be all dried up before they get home :) Our garage and front steps are lined with drying socks, shoes and mud boots and our laundry is filled with wet clothes from their adventures in the lake. Each night they have to cover their legs in lotion because they are chapped from playing in the icy water. But each day they go back wanting more. Eventually it will dry up and then we will have the biggest mud pit around! The kids, unfortunately, will like that even more! I guess (if you look at it through the kids' eyes) there was some good that came out of all the snow we had late in the season this year (besides the obvious moisture for the farmers)!
