This is an old picture of Tempe (from the summer of 2009), but it's what she looks like 90% of the time. This kid loves to play in the dirt. Nothing makes her happier than collecting dirt, rocks, sticks, leaves, grass, flowers, worms, bugs, and snails in a big tupperware bin in the backyard.
A few weeks ago Tempe was playing on the deck with a bucket full of dirt. She came in the house and said "Dad, did you know if you stretch a worm out too far, it breaks?"
And sure enough, there were several "broken" worms on the deck.
