Why did I decide to start a blog?

I should say ANOTHER blog.  I read other people’s blogs. I like reading blogs, especially blogs about crafts, homeschooling, or Waldorf education.  I love to hear about what other homeschoolers around the world are doing. What inspires them, what works, and what doesn’t work.  Also sometimes I do feel a little trapped in my little world here, so maybe blogging will help me feel a little more connected.  Who knows, maybe something we do will be inspiring to others.

The title of this blog.  It’s the middle of the summer here and it’s been a wonderful summer. We are outside much of the time and at the end of the day my kids come home pretty filthy, exhausted, and happy.  Watching my kids play on the endless hot summer days reminds me of when I was little.  My dad used to read me poems all the time and this was one of my favorites:

Mud is very nice to feel,

All squishy-squashy between the toes!

I’d rather wade in wiggly mud,

Than smell a yellow rose.

Nobody else but the rosebush knows,

How nice mud feels between the toes.

—Polly Chase Boyden
