|2011 Manitoba - Flooding in the town of Morris.|

I have been acutely aware of the unpleasant qualities of our soil since at the moment we are living in a new development. The street has not been paved, no one has put in grass yet, and until a few days ago everything seemed coated in sticky clay. Since the weather remained above freezing and it was relatively dry last week we are finally able to venture out the door. We have been enjoying the neighbourhood park at the end of our street. Theo (and I suppose William to some extent) love going to this park which is virtually in a cow field. As you can see from the pictures, it is a play structure erected in the middle of nowhere. I love the fact you can hear the mooing of cattle and smell the earthy, grassy smell of the pasture surrounding it.
