Forts of Joy!

All of my kids just love to build forts. For as long as I can remember they have used blankets and sheets to create their own little comfortable spaces. I am often pulled into the task of helping to construct their tiny dwellings.

Yesterday we built an enormous fort over in our playroom together. I love when I can get so into our task that I have just as much fun as the kids do. Time flew by and we created a fort with 5 rooms and used many blankets, play silks and sheets.

After we were done, the kids crawled into our tee pee and took a much needed cuddle together. Then we ate lunch in one of the rooms. We live life in the slow lane, enjoying our days together. It was so much fun connecting with them in this way.

Love this - my son adores making his own forts! We just took down a giant fort on our porch made from2 huge cardboard boxes, 3 tarps and our porch table - it had a secret hiding compartment and a satellite dish to send coded messages into space :-) What a joy to see kids just exploring with their imaginations!
