My Little Artist and DIRTY DAYS

My Little Artist

Hewitt LOVES to color and draw.
He reminds me of the way my big brother Jordan was when he was younger.
He has such a big imagination and is SO creative.
He is very specific and articulate and quite the perfectionist.
This is just a FRACTION of what he has drawn.
Little does he realize, I am a pack rat and
can't bear to throw away anything he draws.
SO I have loads and loads of pictures....
He is barely 5 and this is what he thought up
I am going to start posting more of his "art" cause I love it
and I want to share his cuteness.
This is "Cosmo the Cougar"

This is "Thing" or "Rock Man"

This is HULK

I have never had a problem with my kids getting DIRTY.
I don't ever remember my parents having a problem with me
getting DIRTY when I was growing up.
Thats what being a kid is all about
splashing in puddles
making messes
finding bugs
collecting bugs
collecting rocks and other treasures
using your imagination
getting good and DIRTY
Nothing a good bar of soap and a tub full of water can't fix....right?

Lately my kids have been getting DIRTY a LOT
Today they were living their dream.
I should have taken a picture of their bath tub.....completely BROWN.
I had to wash their hair twice.
AND this is NOT the first time this summer.

My Aunt and Uncle let the boys play out in there DIRT and MUD.
Between their dogs and DIRT and
kiddie/doggy pool they sure got good and DIRTY!
