As one who grew up playing school hockey on a really muddy and bare field - slipping and sliding all the way - I don't see why kids can't get muddy. After all the detergents and washing machines make washing clothes so much easier than when I grew up.

Although I love the new Portola Valley, well-drained field, we must be careful not to bring up kids to be too precious - a bit of mud won't harm them - balance might even improve when playing on a muddy field.

Have some jolly good old-fashioned fun in the mud!
