Are you the type that digs in and gets your hands dirty or no thank you I don't want that under my fingernails?
I love to run my fingers through wonderful smelling, soft earth. (Locally ours is like clay so it needs a bit of amending to get to that nice soft dirt that I remember from childhood.) With finger paints I'm not so fond of them getting under my nails but I do have fun doing it and getting messy. So yes, I'll get my hands dirty, how about you?
He recently received a book that he loves to read that has mud pies in it...you can guess what we were doing in the pictures!
