Ok guys, we can go outside and play. But NO digging! We have to leave for bible school in 2 hours and I don't want to give you a bath.
Of course they swore they wouldn't dig and out the door they ran. Straight to the "barn" where they proceeded to scoop "poop" not dirt from their cow Butterscotch.
Sometimes you just have to admit they've outwitted you and concede defeat!
