Katie stayed home from school with allergies and ear infection - and after visiting the doctor is feeling well enough to help Sydney with a little project. Sydney and I were planning to go to pick up sticks (so Katie joined us). Sydney always wants to pick up sticks every time we go to church and we won't let her (trying to keep her clean). Well today was her day to pick up some sticks - and she did pick up a few. But quickly she found mud and I (being the older and wiser of the two of us) sent her to the "clean" puddle to get the mud off her shoes. And the pictures tell the rest of the story!
