With our South Texas Heat reaching an upwards of 105 degrees, afternoons must be spent inside in the air conditioning. However, with three rambunctious little boys... afternoons get a little crazy! Who are we kidding most afternoons I'm ready to pull my hair out, unless the brothers have structure and a project helps too!
The boys are natural creators. Sometimes it's Lego's, sometimes it's wooden blocks, sometimes it's dirt from the back yard... but one of the all-time favorite building material is blankets and pillows. That's right, there not just for bedtime anymore!
For Work (Together) Wednesdays, I grabbed an empty laundry basket and overflowed it with blankets, pillows, sheets, stuffed animals, and flashlights. I called in the brothers and stated the challenge
TO WORK TOGETHER
AND BUILD A FORT THAT IS WORTHY OF THREE MIGHTY WARRIORS
After trying several locations... behind the couch, under the bed, in the bathtub... the brothers finally settled under the kitchen table. Two hours later, that's right they worked together for 2 whole hours with no help or arguing AT ALL! I'm even joking, 2 whole hours!!! I think they rebuilt it 10 times before everyone decided it was up to par.
Making Memories while working together, yes please!
