a little bit of dirt won't hurt

Since getting back from Indiana we've had two "school" days with our friend Ashby.  
The first one we learned about worms.

We built a lovely home for our worms...

Sadly the first batch of worms added were well past their expiration date so I had to go back to the store and  exchange them for some living worms.
 Yes, this is much better...

The next day it was all about dirt and worms outside.

The worms were finally released after much excitement in the hands of children.
Then Scott started working on our lunch...

This week we learned about plants.  Our "dirt" was play dough.  It used to be beautiful colors of orange, teal and pink but Scott spent one afternoon smashing all the colors together.  
Turned out his new color inspired new ideas for the dough!

"Cheese, flowers!"
