Yes, this is dirt. Nasty old dirt. My Twerps live in a perpetual state of dirtiness while in Indiana. I know, a normal mother would think this is awful, but I -- fearless Country Girl -- think it is wonderful. Beautiful wonderful Indiana dirt. God's Promised Land. They spent the entire day outside and loved every bit of it. It is not surprising, but the weather has been PERFECT -- again, more proof that Indiana is heaven on earth.
