Let's Experiment

One day, after a big rain, Little Miss Chatterbox found water draining down our gravel driveway. This gave her an idea! She asked me if she could build a dam and channels and test them out with the hose. Then her brothers had to give it a try too. :) I love it when they come up with this kind of "play".

Little Miss Chatterbox pours water into her dam.

It worked! Time to make the channel.

There goes the water!

Summer Joy- Playing in the Sprinkler!

As Little Miss Sunshine headed towards the sprinkler, I called to the other kids to grab her before she got wet. But it was too late.
Much to our surprise, she loved it! She loves water just as much as her big sis. She went through the sprinkler over and over again.

When I finally grabbed her to take her inside, she was completely soaked.... and grinning from ear to ear!
The big kids had an idea to put the sprinkler near the playground so they could get sprayed while they went down the slide or played on their swings.
Ah, the joys of summer!
