This week, I've been watching the construction of a building of some sort on the corner near where we park our car. The neighbor boy has turned a broken clay pot on its side and put some dirt inside. It has a little fence in front of it and a tree planted to the side (not visible in this picture, but look for it in subsequent ones). What do you think it is?
A day or two later I went out and more had been added. Now there was some serious security going on! There was a steep ramp up to the building, thorns at the bottom of the ramp as well as two thorny bars on a pulley system that can be lifted up and let down. The building also got a door. Now what do you think it is?
A few more days go by and the people and animals have moved in! There is a guard at the bottom. Horses have moved in to what appears to be a stable. Soldiers are posted on top of the stable/clay pot.
I get so much enjoyment from the creative play of kids and don't mind sharing the yard with them at all!
