When All Else Fails...

Build a tent!

When it's Friday, or Tuesday, or any day for that matter, and you find yourself looking to spice up the day, grab some sheets, any extra chairs you can find, binder clips (ok, maybe only teachers have these lying around), and whatever space you can find.



This week's tent is brought to you by --- Binder Clips.  Look at that hold!


Throw in a few pillows. Silliness ensues.


But perhaps so does reflecting. 


And mostly, just being a kid.



We grew up playing in indoor tents. Safe to say that being the only girl with two brothers, mine weren't the most architecturally sound or aesthetically pleasing for that matter, but they are a memory I hold near and dear to my heart. It's this memory (and that face in the last picture) that lets me know there's so much more to come!

Binder clips are great for just about everything. We use them when building tents, to attach towels together to make dress up clothes and to close our bags of chips. They are so multipurpose. It looks like you two had a lot of fun.

I love it! And genius to use binder clips-I'll have to pull out my box of teaching supplies when N is at the fort building stage!

I love it! I used to play shark and boat with my brother. One of my best memories of playing with my brother.
