The Mud Queens

A few years back, my girlfriend that still lives in San Diego mentioned that he son’s soccer game had been cancelled because of rain.  She paused a moment, then asked what we did when it rained.  I just laughed and said that if we cancelled games, the kids would never play.

It wasn’t really raining at this morning’s game, but it had been raining…a lot.  Interestingly enough, when you add enough rain to a grass field and then trample it with two dozen pairs of cleats…you end up with a field of mud.

The girls had a blast playing in it.   They had even more fun playing in the mud after the game was over.   Shaun convinced one of the girls to go sliding in the mud.

She was soon joined by several more…

They were all covered  in the nastiest smelling mud ever imaginable.

So we told them they had to take a bath before they could get in the car.

Our little Mud Queens were happy to comply.

    Now that looks like an awesome game. I am tipping that my soccer training tomorrow night won’t be nearly as exciting as that. I am picturing rock hard grounds in 90+ heat! How I wish for rain and mud.

    Oh the joys of getting dirty – in an innocent way, of course. But who has laundry duty?

  4. The photo on their bellies is just awesome!!! I love that not only did they WANT to play in the mud but that you let them. You rock!

  7. We play in the rain in Nor Cal, too. But it doesn’t happen as often as it did when se lived in Bellevue! Love the muddy grins.

    I’m wondering who has laundry duty too. 🙂
    It looks like fun! But I am glad that none of the games my kids played in this fall were that muddy.

    LOVE it!! Reminds me of when Mom would let us don our bathing suits and play in the rain during summer showers (as long as there was no thunder and lightening of course).
