Kayda says. . .

It's not everyday that a single student gets to be roommates with a 4 year old. Maren was a good sport to share a room with Kayda this summer. So I got to be the bystander of some interesting conversations. Here are some of my favorites:

Kayda: Are you afraid of swimming?
Maren: No. Are you?
Kayda: No, I'm afraid of drowning.

Kayda: (asking questions)
Maren: (asked a question)
Kayda: Hey, I'm the one asking questions here.

Kayda telling Maren: That's my soccer field. (changes into an intense voice) It's mine I tell you!

And although this didn't happen with Maren it has been one of my top re-quoted sayings this summer.

By the pool-
Kayda: Where's is my mom?
Lari: She in the house getting changed.
Lari: You have such a fun mom.
Kayda: Sometimes she is, sometimes she isn't

Muddy Buddies

We all know that I am a country kid. I love dirt and mud. So when our family got together for Duane's birthday at my parents house I was so excited that the ponds were full. Stacey and Holly said that they already played in the mud but I was ready to show them how to really get down and dirty.

On the way In
The mud slinging begins

Then there is the good ol' mud bath

I guess we weren't dirty enough- the faces got covered (cheapest mud facial ever!)

The After picture
And then poor mom had to relive the good ol' days by spraying everyone off.
Even though we were cleaned up they were ready to get their faces dirty again with smores.

I don't know how many times I have heard about having "good, clean fun" . Our fun might not have all been clean but we definitely had some "good fun"!
