This morning before he left for his church meetings, Adam helped the boys construct a "fort" in our living room. Ty then took it upon himself to stock it with enough books and games to keep us entertained all morning long.
Yep, my back was pretty stiff after sitting on the hardwood floor all morning, but there is something magical about being in a fort. My older brother was a fort-building whiz when we were kids. I hope my boys remember these times with as much fondness as I remember them from my own childhood.
