Dirt Up, Dirt Down
We live in a great neighborhood for kids. Our library, recreation building, playground, grocery store and pharmacy are all within easy walking, or running, distance. Within a four house grouping, there are seven children ranging from a fifth grader to our 2 year old. They all get along great and enjoy playing together.
The delight in these five kids' eyes when they saw that dirt come pouring out of an already exciting 'BIG DUMP TRUCK' was priceless.
"Yes, you may play in the dirt."
Oscar, with the help of 'Livy' (Olivia), went up and down that pile many, many dirty times. He would shimmy through the dirt as if he were riding on a foot-powered scooter.
And so dirty.
