Nolls' Ark

My aunt and uncle live in a medium-large house in a rural area. They have dubbed their residence "Nolls' Ark," their surname being Noll. As it turns out, rural areas are very dirt-intensive. We arrived yesterday afternoon, and turned Link and Peach loose to explore the house; within an hour, I was beginning to look askance at Peach's previously white socks, which had begun to turn a delicate reddish-brown. By the end of the day, both Link and Peach had become very dirt-intensive, and I sighed deeply and told myself that this was like going camping, and I needed to accept the fact that I just wouldn't be able to keep the kids clean. They seem none the worse for it.
