One Last Summer Project

Two weeks before school started, Jeff and I were outside working on the treehouse.

Dora and Theo found boxes and decided to make treehouses for their guys.

And Clark wanted to paint, too.

You know, I was just at the point of the summer where I was starting to feel discouraged that the kids weren't spending enough time outside, initiating their own play, or doing enough creative projects.

... and then, by surprise, they did all three!

They got out all their own supplies, and put everything away, leaving only a few painty fingerprint surprises for me.

It's nice when we can balance out tv-filled afternoons with some of these days, too.
