They like to dig.
They like to make pies and cakes and piles, 
but mostly they like to dig.  
It makes them happy.
They use the plastic trowels and the plastic shovel without complaining.
Today, they were satisfied with the slow but steady pace the rain-softened soil allowed,
working together to loosen the soil between our trees. 
There were issues regarding the redistribution of the dislocated soil.
Some were brought to my attention with a great sense of urgency. 
Some were resolved by talking it through. 
And some were more possessive of their soil than others.
I have to come up with a creative use for digging.
And you thought you had problems?
