Earlier this week, I installed a hammock. I haven't looked into the regs to see if it can be used for the children during daycare hours yet, and I don't have any special material under it to create a proper "fall zone." I really put the hammock up for Dane and I to use when the other children are not here. However, when the children are here, I can pull the hammock as tight as possible, causing it to create a roof or umbrella shade for the children. I was really excited about having the hammock out- a sure sign of spring/summer, but he children had other ideas for it.....
saving to make a smaller version of this.)
Breaks were taken and discussion was had. I peered from outside with my camera- as it was very clear that this was a "no adults allowed" (nor needed) adventure. I stood by and watched as the creativity continued to flow.
It was becoming more difficult to peer inside of the hidden world they were creating inside.
"Fun Fort Fridays" and then decided that every day was Friday..... I have a feeling that we are about to embark on another long fort building journey.......Dane asked me if we had any extra carpet for their floor out there. I'm going to have to see what other materials I can hunt up for them today! I guess my afternoons of relaxing in the hammock can wait.... at least for a little while. Funny how that tends to happen around here ;).
