Worm hunting

SO what do little boys do outside besides play in the mud? That's right, they worm hunt!

Joe can spend hours outside looking, collecting and relocating worms. He digs them out of the rock pit, collects them in a jar then lets them go by a place we planted sunflower seeds. He looks for worms pretty much everywhere outside though.

Hunting for worms

Joe and his worm

Ike copies everything the other kids do. He follows Joe like a shadow.
The picture below shows Joe and Ike hanging out under the deck. Joe is trying to tell me he is going to make a mudslide but not play in the mud. How does that work? Also, the wood all piled here is the "fire" that Joe built with spare wood. Joe loves to build with just about anything. He has loved the extra wood in the back yard!

That reminds me of Caroline a couple weeks ago. She counted out thirty worms. Squirmy worms are so much fun! I'll have to post that picture of her on Wed.
