Ask and you shall receive

The last two weeks have been one big party for the kids.
First, it was just the yard itself. They were enthralled with all of the dirt, grass, leaves, rocks, bugs, nuts, seeds, and etc to explore at their leisure. Not to mention the room to run, the walls to climb and the freedom to jump.
Then Daddy brought home their sandbox and then, he filled it with sand.
A few days later, they were able to go to the Good News Club Store and Nate was not only allowed to purchase a water-gun but was allowed to play with it right away in the back yard. Unheard of pleasures!
Then I made a trip to Dollar Tree and stocked up on sand toys and previously taboo items like a baseball bat.
The puppy was the icing on the cake, while the "sprinkles" were a Super Soaker Sprinkler.
And we are not yet finished. Somewhere in our future is a swing or two to hang from the trees, flowers and veggies to plant, and probably even a wading pool.

And they thought they were just getting a yard.

Mat 7:11 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?

I know! We had the same thing happen when we finally bought a house with a YARD! It is just so wonderful. :)
