That hole in the flower bed the kids dug earlier this spring has served a purpose. It continues to grow and now is serving as a retention pond, apparently. Who needs swing sets and bicycles when you have a personal sized retention pond to entertain them.
And no, they did not ask first before they got this muddy. But I am getting better about not exploding and just opening the Oxi Clean and tossing it in with the clothes in the washer. Sigh.
