Holes

The boys asked if they could dig holes in our backyard. They want to link them together with underground tunnels.   We said yes since 1/3 of our backyard is dirt.
This has been their entertainment for about three hours each day... until they are too tired to dig anymore.  Andrew had this big rock to deal with today. 
Frustrated, he kept at it until he was able to remove it.






Kind of reminds me of a certain movie.

  1. As a child I absolutely LOVED digging holes. These photos brought back fun memories. If I were at your house, I'd be out there digging, too!

  2. Camp Greenlake for sure! But with lots of love, encouragement, and Christ-centered character development. :-)

  3. This looks potentially disastrous...please rethink letting the boys make tunnels.

  4. Please be careful with tunnels a child near me died 2 years ago, when a tunnel she had dug, collapsed on her. I hate to stop kids doing anything but please be careful.

  6. Hope a tree or two can be planted in the holes when they are done digging, would be a nice momento !

  7. One of my fondest memories is digging a hole deep enough and wide enough that three of us could fit in it and not be seen when we stood in it. I have to admit I would not allow for tunnel making just because of the danger, but holes are a blast!

  8. How fun is that. I agree no tunnels with a 'ceiling'. We don't allow kids to do that with snow here either due to kids getting collapsed on. However, how about a series of trenches.
