For two days, the children have been working at the creek “building a house.” (Sidenote: This is the same creek that runs up to Priest Field, where I took my retreat. It’s a LONG creek!) They have been so excited about this house and have been begging for us to come see it. “It’s big, Mom! It’s like a real house! David can stand up in it!” So we went to see it…and were blown away. Is it time to abandon our big ol’colonial home? Not quite, but if they can crank out another 10 of these…perhaps..

I’m guessing that David, who is largely responsible for any and all architectural achievements around here, is gleaning a lot from watching the Primitive Technology channel on YouTube. This man is amazing.

This puts a whole new dimension on my “tiny house” dream… 😂
