Before we moved in, we discovered a fort carved out in our trees (our whole yard is surrouned by evergreens)and the kids were SO excited! Then, as we moved in and settled, Collin 'pruned' our yard and they found two more! The family that lived here several years before us left us a treasure! Our kids have spent hours playing school, house, climbing trees and ropes. They even made a home made 'toilet'-BUT that's where i had to draw the line. I reminded them we DID live in the 20th century ;) I finally ventured out to take pictures the other day.
Enjoy :)

 This boy is obsessed with drums. In church. On TV. On Cd's. You name it. If it has a beat, he has a stick to accompany the beat (or spoon or toy...).
At this point i think he may be more of a rock band artist.  Head banging and all.
He started out with banging on every piece of furniture, so i gave him plastic containers. But he banged so hard he broke them.
SO, now we are back to banging on furniture (and big sisters).
OH-and never sit to close to him with a drum stick (we have learned the hard way!)
Of course we ALWAYS have to remind that drum sticks are for 'making music', not beating up sisters.
Oh the adventures with this one!
