I have read quite a few articles lately discussing the importance of children playing in dirt and how beneficial it can be for their immune systems. Today Hannah and Blake, tired of playing cricket with their cousin, decided of their own accord to sit under the shade of the huge tree and play and dig in the dirt. There they stayed for at least 20 minutes completely absorbed in discovering this great natural ‘sand-pit’. It was lovely to watch.

  1. We love dirt too! (well, not so much Finn, but Harper’s love for it makes up for his lacking 😉
    Love the last shot of Hannah. Her smile is so war,.
