As I mentioned on Monday, the weather has been very un-July-like so far. After weeks of sunshine, temperatures dropped and the rain clouds came and with it a slight dampening of our Summer fun.
But that didn’t last long.
We purchased a new washing machine (my first ever new, not-second-hand washing machine, hooray!) and when the kind delivery men saw how thrilled my kids were with the giant box, they gave them two more from the back of the truck.
Three HUGE boxes to play with?
Time to make a MEGA fort!
The fort has three rooms – a butterfly garden, a living room, and a kitchen. A butterfly room? I love it!
There is a mailbox, a kitchen sink and stove, and the kids have even made framed artwork for the walls. My eleven year old is making duck tape curtains for the windows and I know there are plans for a round “stained glass” window in the front door.
I’ve been asked to keep my eyes open on my next yard sale/thrift store adventure for a little welcome mat.
