i love dirt!

Back in June I was the lucky winner of the book i love dirt from Kristin at Life in the Hammer Home. i love dirt is a book with 52 different activities to explore the wonders of nature according to the seasons.  I had big plans to do one activity per week all summer long… but well… life happened and that didn’t work out.   Let’s hope for better results in weeks to come.

But it is never too late.  On Monday night Alex and I got dirty! We did activity #15 and played in a pile of dirt.  I recently dug a flower garden beside our deck and have not planted much in it – so we had a perfect playing area. We had shovels and hoes, as well as a few trucks to move the dirt around. 

I really think Alex enjoyed it.  He even wanted to touch the grub we found… yuck! (I was hoping we would find a worm – I’m not afraid of worms… but grubs are just gross)

The activity recommended turing the dirt into mud… but sadly I was not that brave.  Maybe next year.

I’m very keen with Alex geting  into nature.  My only hope is that he doesn’t think that he can always play trucks in my flower garden.
