Crazy for Forts

My 9-year-old daughter is into fort-building. Her 4th grade class has been studying Alaska Native cultures, which inspired her recently to race home after school and construct an Aleut house in our back woods.

Look at the sturdiness of that structure,
which so perfectly demonstrates the concepts of
function AND beauty.

Her younger sisters pose in the fire pit
to model how ancient Alaskans might have warmed themselves.

Unfortunately, one kid is now seriously considering stealing matches from my kitchen drawer and setting the woods ablaze.

Dinner last night: spaghetti, green peas

Exactly one year ago today: The Fog Creeps In on Little Cat Feet
