The SAC


Recently Alexi built a hockey target/goal for the boys to shoot pucks at in the garage. He made a wooden frame and attached carpet to it - it can be seen on the wall behind Abbott in the top photo. The extra lumber has been sitting around in the garage since that time; last weekend Abbott decided he wanted to make something with it. His initial idea was to build a campground for the back yard. He used a hand saw and did almost all of the sawing all by himself, and the nailing with some help and supervision. Once the structure was up, Abbott decided he wanted it to be a club house for the garage. (Fortunately we never park in the garage!) The club is called the SAC, or Secret Abbreviation Club. All week there have been meetings with a schedule of activities including free choice, lunch, recess, and work time. Want to join?

The Secret Abreviation Club? That's priceless! I love it when their imaginations take over. My two spent most of Monday creating a dog house for my husband's papillon out of an old diaper box, paint and streamers. Yay!

That is so cute~ I do want to join!
Little ones {and some of us bigger ones too} want a special place to call our own- it never changes!
Your boys are busy creating ~ in the garage or the kitchen. I love hearing about these little guys.

Abbott says girls are of course allowed, after all Mommy's a club member too, and he has added the name of each and every commentor to his club list! And there is a handshake, Heidi - you're in luck.
