Did a quick sketch this afternoon of our toy end of the “play porch.” Roses are in bloom, pressing against the dirty old screen and fragrances from the peonies below drift up and mingle with the fresh scent of our garden tree. You can see the cardboard play house that I built with an X-acto knife and some duct tape and a few large boxes we had laying around. It has three rooms, and a skylight. I stuck christmas lights through holes in the top…it has windows that face out a direction that you can’t see. It has been a great place for the kids..they love playing in it. Last night I spent a few hours trying to sort toys for the garage sale that I hope to have in a few weeks…we have far to many toys. We love this space for the kids…but I so need to get it organized! Just a few more days and I’ll be able to tackle my huge list of things to do this summer.
