Sometimes all kids need to have a really great time is a whole lot of freedom and an equal amount of dirt. It never ceases to amaze me that kids can occupy themselves for so long with so very little. We were fortunate enough to have my nephews come and stay with us for a week, and boy oh boy did these kids have a great time together. There was no need for elaborate activities or toys to keep them busy and happy. All we needed were the thankfully cooler temperatures and lots of freedom to roam, play, and dig. Kait was more than happy to show her cousins all the best ways to play and get really and truly dirty. You know it was a good time when more often than not we had to spray off with the water hose or strip down on the porch before coming in the house.
