Big boys, little boys, & lots of dirt!

Here is my lovely home.  From this angle you’d never suspect that something big is happening on the other side.


They are replacing all the pipes in the road. Which takes weeks and weeks to do (especially with all the rain we have been getting) I no longer can park in our driveway.  I have to walk down the street about half a block to get to my van. I have to take the trash and recycling down half a block in order for it to be picked up. Our mail box is on a completely different street. I never check it anymore. The library used to be a straight shot two blocks down. Now I have to walk around the blocks.  It’s all very inconvenient, especially on grocery shopping day.

But I have some little boys that are loving this. All of it! The digging:

The dirt in the hands:

The big boys are just feet from our front yard:


This is what they do for hours every day:

And this is how I am spending my summer so far:


Honestly I really don’t get it.  It’s just dirt.  My boys just push around the same dirt hour after hour.

And so do the big boys, come to think of it. Titus says he understands it totally. I guess it’s a boy thing.

So if you have some boys that would like to come watch and dig for an afternoon come on over.  Chances are we’ll already be out there. 😀
