A taste of dirt...

Liam and Finn had their first taste of dirt...literally. Yesterday was a bit overcast, so I felt it would be perfect to take the boys outside and work in the garden. It made me happy to see them playing in the dirt and examining the weeds I pulled and threw onto the grass. Finn found a rolly polly bug and squished it between his chubby fingers. Liam quickly climbed up on the sandbox ledge 
and ended up face down in the dirt pile. 

I grabbed both boys and stood them up by the grow box and gave them a shovel to play with, along with rocks I found. 
When I looked up to check on them, this is what I saw:

Isn't eating dirt like a rite of passage for a kid? 
Also, how could such dirty faces be so deliciously adorable?

  1. My Grandma Gillett was always "for" kids getting dirty. It's just part of their learning process! (But I do hope they're up to date on their shots!)
