This seemed ambitious to me - building the playset ourselves. Sooooo many pieces labeled with letters and numbers. "Oh yeah," he said. "We can do this. It'll be good for them," he said. "They need to learn to this kind of thing." He was right.
The kids asked everyday how many more days til they could open the big boxes that have been waiting in the garage since Christmas. Last weekend was the start date. They got up bright and early Saturday morning and began doing inventory and making a game plan. My head does not work this way, for the record. I'm sure glad his does. Patiently they sorted and piled and hammered and tightened screws. It's nearly finished and with any luck it will be together before the weather turns again Sunday.
