Zack saw directions for a tree house in The Dangerous Book for Boys, and decided to build him a tree house.
He set right to, chose the perfect tree (even better than I would have imagined since I can see it from the kitchen and living room windows!), and got the framework up with some help from Brother. I was extremely impressed since Zachary is a perfectionist and while he has a zillion wonderful ideas, he is always looking to someone else to implement them in the name of "helping" him.
I pointed out his success to Daddy and we both recognized that the lumbar Z used wouldn't support the structure he was attempting. The next thing I knew, Daddy was helping disassemble Zack's start, and they commenced to build something a bit sturdier.
Zack and Clay have installed the "floor" all by themselves, and then Daddy sawed off the jagged pieces sticking out.
They continue to work on it diligently, and I am more impressed than ever that Zack didn't peter out once he got some help from dad, but has kept after it!
I think it will be a place the children congregate for some time:-)
Hold it here Brother.
That's a way!
Can you check to see if the nail went through?
Yep. Mighty fine piece of work.
