FORT WAGS

Last Fall Carson talked to his Dad about building a tree house. Dad said that a tree house was not possible, but a clubhouse/fort might be a possibility. Carson had not forgotten about this conversation and asked his Dad early Spring about the clubhouse again. Dad told him he would have to wait until after his busy season. Well, two weekends ago Dad came through! He has been working diligently on this fort for the boys. They are all very excited!

When at Costco a few weeks ago, the boys saw a little playhouse that had a big window, like a drive-up window. They liked the idea and told their dad. So on one side of the fort there is a big window. On the other side there are two windows one higher than the other. In the back there is a window that is higher up just to let some light in! Pretty darn good for not really having any real plans drawn up. Just one little boy with a dream and a handy dad to fulfill it!The fort gets a thumbs up from the boys! They have loved watching the progress and helping their dad work on it.

Oh, the creative play and memories that will be made by these three boys this summer and many seasons to come!

Next step is moving it to the backyard and adding some siding, shingles, door and paint. Dad even said he might build a bench on the back wall for them to sit on!

More pictures to come as the progress continues. Jim has gotten a lot of hugs and thank yous from his boys. I think more than anything knowing that their dad is the one that made it for them will mean the most!
