As we were driving home from school today, Will requested that we play outside in the dirt when we got home. I am more than happy to let my kids get dirty and I encourage them to play outside as much as possible, so we quickly set up a construction site in their dirt pile when we got home.
The boys were happily playing amongst themselves, so I went into the garage to straighten some things up. After a few minutes, I started hearing lots of giggling coming from the dirt pile. I look over to see Nathan covered head to toe in dirt – I could barely make out his little body in the dirt, he blended right in! Will was scooping handfuls of dirt and pouring it over his brother’s back.
They were having so much fun, it was hard to break up the party. When it was dinner time, I stripped the boys down to their shorts and hosed them off in the front yard.
