Dirt! Glorious Dirt!

Since we don’t have a backyard of our own, we are always on the hunt for a good dirt pile.  Luckily there having been some stellar pickings to choose from in our neighborhood over the years.

My husband and I love watching the adventurous spirits and creativity provoked by a good old dirt pile.  We also appreciate being able to sit at a distance away and converse among ourselves for hours.

I also like to believe that the bambini’s exposure to dirt helps to strengthen their little immune systems.
