Dirt

A child’s fascination with dirt astounds me. What they create, discover and imagine with it is too numerous to count. All of the chocolate milkshakes, the stews, and the pies with worms inside. Oh and cannot forget the cakes with grass and leaves and sticks for the frosting. The planting of seeds and the digging of weeds. Watching how things grow and figuring out what you can eat and what you cannot. The mud show…wish I had pictures of that one…they created a mud puddle and rolled around in it in their swimsuits and did a little dance and skit show covered in mud. But the most fascinating of all is the dirt showers. Still don’t understand the joy of having dirt in your hair.
