My boy is all boy!

Graham, Gretchen, and Emma went for a wagon ride Saturday morning while Tucker and Wesley napped. Graham wanted to show the girls how the common area in our neighborhood had filled with water after a big storm earlier in the week. He insisted that he go down and get a closer look of the water. He was the only one with boots on and the only one that really wanted to go, so we watched from the sidewalk as he walked down the hill. He, of course, took his stick so he could go fishing. He loves to explore and get dirty and wet. Most of the time, I just take a deep breath, let him explore, and know I can just do more laundry. What's a little dirt when your boy is having fun?

Graham's checking out the water and trying to catch a fish with his stick as we look on from the sidewalk.
After the wagon ride, we went in our back yard and Graham decided he needed to explore some more. Emma and Gretchen anxiously looked on as he got pretty wet and dirty. They were a little nervous that he would slip and fall, but he was having so much fun.
My boy is all boy and Gretchen and Emma are all girls.

You are pretty lucky, Graham, to have enough rain to make mud, and to get to play in it, too. And a!

Isn't the contrast between boys and girls a beautiful thing??
