Playing in the nest again

Went out to walk dogs today and found Sherman has been in the nest again, digging and filling.  I have no clue what she's doing but it was neat to watch her for a while.

She's started filling in most of the original nest but has left a spot at the top of it that's hollow.  Maybe so as hatchlings get out of the shell they can get out of the nest easier?  Then she's started to dig another hole to the back of the nest.  I'm dying to see if this is another nest or if she's digging herself a cave or..........who knows? 

Will keep an eye on her today and see what she's up to, but wanted to get the photos of her newest 'project' up while I have time.
