Spring is coming, sometimes it feels like it is here already. Today, the boys are gearing up for another air soft war, and have been building elaborate trenches and forts and bunkers every free second they got since last spring. The problem is that when winter comes and the leaves fall off all the trees we can see all of their creations. This spring it will be different because I have disallowed any artificial matter being used in the forts. To them, this means
1. No PVC piping
2. No tarps
3. No electrical or duct tape
Oh, they complained about this every chance they got. I told them they just have to figure something out. Yet, I know they don't really appreciate just how rewarding it is for them ...to think, and create, and get dirty and muddy and come up with their own natural fort. Someday they will.
