Last week, my little girls’ preschool teachers brought live worms to class, and they both held the worms, but some of the little boys in their class didn’t want to touch the worms. We (the moms) had some laughs about that.
This evening, the girls were helping me pull weeds in our garden when we found a good-sized worm. Both of the girls wanted to hold it and fought over who got to put it back in the dirt.
This worm was more wiggly than any we have found in our garden before, and they had to use both hands to keep it from getting away from them.
These girls love nature and being outdoors. They enjoy getting dirty too as you can see from Little Sister’s hands and the smile on her face.
Just in case you are wondering, they DO have shoes and gardening gloves. They would rather go barefooted and get their hands and feet dirty than mess with silly contraptions like shoes and gloves.
