My girls consistently love to play in the mud. 
I know it's not a game, but we play it so often,
 I actually cleared out a big patch of grass around our mud-hole to make it bigger.

Cricket, you are the coolest mom ever --
I love that you actually made your girls a mud pit!
My girls love to play in the mud too : )
Cricket's answer to the sewing question:

Cricket said...

Who taught me to sew? That's hard to answer. I remember I took a class at age 12 and threaded the needle on the machine from back to front. They wondered how I had even managed to do that. But I don't remember learning anything else. I guess that means I am self taught.I figure if there is a pattern, I can make it. If not, the worst that will happen is a big old ugly bit of cloth.
I learned basic sewing from my mother and my elementary art teacher.
 Then, I took a year of Home EC in Middle School and 
learned how to sew an apron on a sewing machine.
4 years later, during my senior year of High School, 
I dropped out of my 4th year of French 
(and an icky math class that I've repressed) I signed up for "Clothing 1 and 2"

My sewing skills, learned in those classrooms, 
have been MUCH more handy (and used a lot more often) than my french lessons!
