Weekend Activity – Digging in the mud

Technically, this was Friday night, but this has been a busy weekend, so I’m counting it as our weekend activity.

We have been in the process of replacing our septic tank, which is not fun.  Well, it’s not fun unless you’re a little boy and they send an excavator to your house to dig a really deep hole for a soil test.  So, our yard is ruined (although there’s definitely an argument that it was ruined well before the excavator came), and Joe has been asking to go outside and dig like an excavator.  He has been asking at night when he should be going to bed, or when we’re in the car on the way to a class.  So, yesterday he asked to do it during a time that we were home, and it wasn’t yet time for bed, but, it was pouring!  I had said no so many times, that I decided to say yes.  It was messy and cold.  Definitely not my idea of fun, but the boys had a blast.  These picture were taken before my hands were too muddy to hold my phone.  Things got much dirtier!  Digging is good exercise, right?
