The Island.

Good morning, it is Thursday.

Yesterday was a chore day and a hang out at home day. Not too many kids were around in the early part of the day, so it was just the littles and Devin all morning. Hansen and Devin tried hard to get rid of Lillie time and time again, but she did a good job of sticking around. Finally they decided to just build forts for their GI Joes guys. Lillie built forts for her Polly Pockets girls. The playground of the day was the island in the middle of the culde-sac. The island has been a playground forever. Every couple of years when the rental house is looking for new renters, or a new family moves in the area, the newbies decide to clean up the island. It will stay nice for awhile, but it quickly becomes the playground for the 20+ friends of the kids on the street. The island is the base for many different games, it is a place to dig for treasure, and yesterday it was the home of a new bunch of forts. Maybe some day it will be more boring than it is today, but that will be a long time from now.

I don't know what we will do today. The weather is supposed to be nicer, so I may get the kids out for something other than the neighborhood. We will see where the day takes us.

See you tomorrow.
