Playing in the Dirt

What a mess! Today we had some friends over to play, and like always, the kids ended up in the yard. It hadn't been raining for the past couple of days, so it was mostly dry in the yard. It was muddy but not too muddy until the boys found a bucket filled with a week's worth of rain. They dumped it into the hole the kids have been digging for weeks. That is when we had a real big mud pie. The boys had a great time and they got so deliciously muddy. Andrew kept saying "poop" no matter how I tried to explain that it was just dirt with lots of water, and that is called mud. He didn't believe me. He still thought he was playing in "poop".
Oh, what will they do when we finish the side yard this summer and there's no more exposed dirt? Maybe we will have to add a dirt/sand box to the side yard. --emily

What a perfect day for mud play, looks like everyone had a grand time. You must leave a space for dirt play in the side yard, it's so good in our over sanitized world. It will be the place of your boys best memories. Some of my best journal entries involve dirt.

There's nothing like a day full of getting dirty. I still love playing in the yard. We have a sand and water table, but use pebbles on the sand side instead. The kids have a blast mixing and sorting with the water.

Yup. Boys gotta have dirt.
