Now spring break is here and David wants to make a fort, a place to hide when his friends come out to play.
He decided to dig it in the middle of the road.
Go figure on that one.
I can suggest a good place up in the trees by the barrels where there is a large pile of dirt, fantastic stones to build walls out of, and copses of trees to hide in. There must be something special about the road. I was watching Mary's kids play in the back yard one day when it was cold and the snow was deep.

I would not have imagined that the tree fort would have been in the mix of what they were planning.
But I watched them get to the top of it, swing down on the rope, and make a pulley to get stuff down to those below.
I must be the one with tunnel vision, for I couldn't figure out why the tree house was figuring into the snow play ... nor why the middle of the road is a good place for a fort.
Only they know.
