So we’ve all heard the saying ‘a picture is worth a 1,000 words’. And it’s so true. It may be cliche but it has deep meaning in many cases. There were so many pictures I wanted to pull from prior weeks but I tried hard to use pictures from this week. This week the kids and I built a fun ‘living room’ fort. All I had that was light weight was ‘white’ and we grabbed several pillows to make it comfy and it turned out a quite girly unintentionally. We have a ‘feminine’ look throughout much of our house when it comes to accessories so this is about as neutral as it gets lol. But Ty was a great sport grabbing grey pillows from the couch and mustard pillows from the play room. It was cozy at least.
For homework each day I like the kids to read in a quiet spot, so Ty and Brielle ran to the fort to read. Ty has read the Harry Potter series but Brielle hasn’t so he started reading them to her. Anyway, I thought this moment was fitting for this week’s theme. Reading in a magical fort – how much fun is that?! All in all we had a blast building this and the kids haven’t wanted to take it down. Brielle wants to sleep in it this weekend – the ground is super hard so I don’t know how long she’d last. But a family slumber party for a few hours in the front room could be fun. I wish we could leave this up permanently too. I’m sure we’ll build more fun forts. My kids can’t get enough of them!
Oh and guess where I found Brielle this morning when I went to wake her up for school? She loves it.
