Good times. Why is it that digging in the dirt and gardening are not equally enjoyable?
Where are the sticks? You gotta have sticks, too. :)
My mom used to give us a bucket of water and old paintbrushes for us to "paint" the back fence with. Kept us busy for hours and I think she had a nice "Tom Sawyer" moment when she had clean fences (at least the bottom 5 feet).
