Little Builders

 

We play outside a lot. A lot!  There are several things my children love to do in the outdoors.  You will find them biking, exploring, imagining wonderful worlds of magic and adventure, but one of their most favorite things to do outside is to build.  They raid the wood buckets in the garage to find the best wood to build their house.  Sometimes they are hiding from the bad men that fall from the sky (we can frequently see skydivers from our front yard).  Today, like many others they were building a beautiful home and decorating it.  Normally they do this right at the front door.  And that’s where they began today.

Then Willow decided to ride her bike and Chloe was sad to have her house destroyed.  So she found some nearby land and they all started again.  DSC_0236DSC_0241

No, her glasses are not prescription.  But she sure can rock them!DSC_0240

Every house needs flooring.

They insisted on a rock garden, because how lovely is a rock garden!?DSC_0251

And finished it up with a fence.  DSC_0256

And then they spent quite a while playing in their house.  Until they voluntarily swept out the garage (no complaints from this mama!).  I love these impromptu team building projects they have.  One of Scott’s plans when they get a little older is to give them a pile of wood (which he has measured out) and tell them to work together and build a bridge over the canal between the yards in our backyard.  This is great practice for that!

  1. Oh my goodness, this is great! I have to admit, I was a little nervous about the board on the bikes, over Choles recently stapeled head! I like the house by the lamp post much better. Way to go girls, you Rock!
