In honor of Earth Day here a few shots of Eli’s first “earth” experience.
I started him out on the blanket not knowing what he would think. I know there are kids that won’t crawl off into the grass.
Not our little guy. He went straight for it.
He was pretty focused on getting to the garden boxes where his sister was but then…
he found a leaf…
and had to stop and examine it.
Then he got distracted by a big stick. He was very happy playing with this and another close by stick for a good ten minutes.
He was very proud of himself by the time he finally crawled into the garden boxes.
It didn’t take long before he realized this stuff was different from the grass he was just in.
He liked crumbing it between his fingers.
For a quick minute I turned to take a sweet picture of my Eden only to turn back around
to find Eli eating his first hand full of dirt.
Happy Earth Day! Hope you enjoyed some dirt yourself.
