Eloise helped me clean out the sprinklers. She was delighted everytime I turned them on, and she sat on my lap and weilded pliers to give me some help when the sprinklers were off. After we got them operational, we let her run around in them for a while. She was delighted, and is now very attentive anytime I turn water on outside. We gave her the sippy cup to discourage her from licking the puddles on the driveway.
