Cardboard Days


We had a self imposed quiet day at home today. Caleb has a fairly mild cold, but started to sound wheezy yesterday, so off to the doctor we went. He is now the proud (yes, he really is) owner of his very own puffer and spacer. He is much better today, but I just felt like the 3 of us needed a break.

The best thing about these long days kicking about at home is the kids always come up with some creative pursuit or another. (The worst things are the peeling screams of Miss Jemima when things aren't going her way.)

Pictured above is a bow and arrow (and "bag" for the arrow made lovingly by me from a toilet roll), and Caleb independently constructed the phone and foot-man-with-feet. We had a good laugh about that one.

Great bow & arrow. That is really creative indeed.
Footman looks amazing - what a brilliant idea for a character. I hope he likes talking on the phone!

That is fantastic, I love it! Seriously LOVE it. What a cool set. You have to keep those Bek. He is one clever cat.

(Noah has a spacer too, unfortunately Scout thinks it's the best thing and tries to do it herself - though it's not even hers).

wow...cardboard and imagination....look what you can accomplish ! Expected temps of 42 degrees tomorrow, me thinks I shall go find a cardboard box for our stay at home day under the airconditioner.
( think you should box that lot up as a 21st keepsake pressie! )

You're such a cool mom! Oh. yes. and, peeling screams...yikes. Since two has struck, Levi lets out loads of them.
