We have a pit!!  (Honestly never thought I would say that with such enthusiasm and joy)  We can honestly say that we have officially broken ground for the house.  This pit resulted in three HUGE dirt piles that the kids have crawled over, slide down and constructed into all sorts of thrones.   They are more excited about these dirt piles than anything else.  I love their enthusiasm though not necessarily the dirt in the car (or the play room, the bathroom, the bedroom….)  🙂
