Trash Pit

Don't gross out, okay. This is just life here.

Our trash pit in the backyard, where we put all trash except food, became quite full, even with all the burning that takes place every day.

A few weeks ago, Patrick decided to dig it out. Most of the pile is ashes from all the days of burning, so he decided to distribute the ashes over the backyard.

Caleb watched intently.

It wasn't long before he had a stick in his hand, pretending he was doing the same thing as Patrick.

Then next thing I knew, Caleb and Karis were both out there with tools, digging and carrying piles of ashes to the wheelbarrow.

This picture doesn't do justice to the amount of dirt that was
actually on them, but you get the idea…

Caleb may or may not have been sick for a day (probably from licking his lips), but we won't talk about that. We're all good, and they had a good time.

Awesome! Love the dirtiness. I need to be better at daily bathing. For now, we at least wash the nasty feet and legs daily.
