Boys will be boys
My husband is building a small garden shed, to clear out our garage and make more room for our cars... I mean, bikes and scooters, jump ropes, basketballs, wagons, etc. You get my point. He had a LOT of scrap wood left over laying in the yard. Well there was no way my 8 yr. old could pass up a chance at a big pile of wood just laying there, waiting for him to get his hands on. Here is what he came up with.
They made a fort. It was all engineered, designed and built by my 8 yr. old, but my 5 yr. old thinks he played a pretty big part in the design as well :)
He did a great job at the design, and there was no way that thing was going to fall down. We even had a few rain storms with a bit of wind, and it held strong.
I love it when my kids get creative and use their imaginations! On another note, it's been very busy around here. I'm trying to keep up with the garden and spent all day today weeding, watering and transplanting. So far so good. I even spotted a few blooms on my tomato plants, yay!! The baby kittens have turned into little rascals and we enjoy sitting on the porch every night (after they've had their afternoon nap) watching them wrestle, and race around the front yard. They've taken over my front landscaping, much to my husbands dismay.
If any of you know me personally, you know, I was never much of a cat person, but these kittens are really growing on me. I mean, come on, how can I resist that face. They are so cute and playful.
So that's what's been going on, around here lately. We are enjoying our summer vacation, so far and again, I feel so blessed to be right here, living this life, right now, right where I am suppose to be! God is good and my heart is full!
