{Project 26 – ’1,000 Words’}

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.
