I asked what they were building and was told "a pirate ship of course". Of course, what was I thinking?
We have been through dinosaurs, Peter Pan, David & Goliath, and many more phases, I am about ready for this pirate one to end. Any recommendations on what I could steer them toward next?
Then, because this is how our life is, they had to put on their pirate outfits. These kids are very creative and really get into whatever they are playing.
Abandon ship! They played outside ALL afternoon and had a blast.
And, I actually got some work done without having to get snacks, help build, find outfits, etc. As they get older, they are doing those things to take care of themselves and although I am sad they are growing so fast, it is nice. It was like Independence Day when Littlest Buckaroo learned to buckle himself in his car seat.
Who knows what I have in store today with these Buckaroos turned Buccaneers.
