Owen dragged a box out into our backyard this afternoon, and also (in an surprising glimpse of thoughtful big sibling-ness) brought up boxes for Sara and Drew. They became “kennels”. The kids were “puppies for sale”. They furnished their kennels and a very peaceful 30 minutes passed. The only requirement of the presiding adult was to accept the “puppy mail”, which consisted of bits of Owen’s schoolwork from last week. Apparently, puppies REALLY like to send mail. It was lovely!

Peter took advantage of our nice weather and (long naps) to dig a trench in the yard. I think it will hold an electrical conduit of some sort. Trenches, and the dirt piles that they produce, are highly desirable to the toddler in search of gross things to taste and dangerous places to climb…

I have to say, I’m a little embarrassed to go public with the amount of dirt our children are allowed to consume while we take pictures of them…
