I noticed how much bigger and stronger Lukas is this year: he was able to get a tire in the fort by himself. This year, Lukas also brought Tom's large magnet along to drag and find old nails in the ground. Each child can check out a hammer and 3 nails. If they want more nails, they have to bring 2 old nails to get 1 new nail. The magnet (Lukas' idea!) made finding old nails sooooo easy.
"We are rich with nails," says Lukas.
Such a team-building opportunity! It makes my heart sing to see kids working together to do something fun. Lukas is pounding on the fort and Kendall is bringing wood.
More problem solving with Court and Lukas.

Lukas falls off the raft on purpose a lot. The lagoon is not meant for swimming, but he seems to have more fun if he is completely wet.

Lukas is not swimming, just sitting there enjoying the mud.
