This year we have relocated our mud-pie kitchen to allow more space and easier water access. After all, if you're gonna have mud, ya' gotta have water. What we have learned is that the mud-pie kitchen is very temporary. Although it looks wonderful to begin with, it starts to get used and worn out pretty quick. So we are searching for some "new" worn items for the next round. Keep your eyes open for the next incarnation.
The slide hill has new grass, for year two. We are actually pleased with how well the grass survived such a well traveled hill. But newer green is always beautiful. We slightly reduced the pitch of the hill (to help with water run-off) and cut natural steps into the back of it for access. We decided to not re-sod that back area with grass (for obvious reasons). We'll see what happens.
Thanks so much to all Caring Connection Children's Center family and friends, now and then.
