Yes, we let our children play nekkid in the rain. We let them run around barefoot. We even don't really mind all that much if the eat dirt and sticks. We like that they like to pick up dead bugs and show them to us with enthusiasm (though we usually don't hold their pet dead bugs ourselves). We love that they will pet frogs and goats. We love that some of their favorite toys are sticks and rocks and water.
We love that our babes are some happy country kids.
