I know I have written before about how my kids LOVE to play outside. I have often said, some people have “outdoor dogs”, I have “outdoor kids.” We are so blessed to have a woods with a creek behind our house. Over the years playing in the woods has evolved into many things……..fort building, flashlight tag at nights, some serious dam building in the creek, digging of gigantic holes, a mud factory, a clay pottery club, mud pie factory etc…. However as of late our beautiful woods has turned into…..well how do I say this………umm………do I call it a shack city, or a plethora of homeless shelters, or as the kids would say a glorious fort complex! Please take a quick tour of our woods and let me know what you think. 🙂
Despite being quite the eyesore for the average mom, I think the latest and greatest forts are a great lifetime memory maker, and it certainly fosters the creativity in my kids. 🙂 Oh and please look carefully at the one picture of The Inventor inside the one fort…….yes that is a copy of the U.S Constitution hanging up in the fort! Why it is there……that I can not answer, it must be a kid thing…… And I like that.
