The big excitement this weekend was that BobBob installed his new, custom-designed monkey bars on the girls’ playstructure. When we moved into this new house, the girls loved the playstructure that was in the yard, but really missed the bars we used to have at the old house. So he designed them a pair that fit our yard exactly, and could be nice and low right now (because I’m a chicken after Ree’s broken arm) or raised up as the girls grow.
It’s funny, but when I was growing up, I always knew my dad could build anything in the world. And now Ro and Ree think the same thing – they must have even heard us talk about his job title at some time, because when Ro had to write a sentence with an “e” word at school she wrote:
The girls are already hard at work honing their simian skills. I think they’ve spent seven or eight hours on those monkey bars in the last two days and they’re on them again right now. Last summer, just before we sold the old house and playstructure, Ro and Ree had three rows of callouses on their hands and their back and arm muscles were so ripped it was insane. They were as tough as nails and three times stronger. Go babies go. And thanks BobBob and Wela!
Spring Fling: This is post #4 of my Spring Fling effort to do a daily post for 30 days. Some friends have gotten spring fever too and agreed to join me in this mad quest. Check out these blogs to see the other Spring Fling daily posts: Dragonflies, Koprowski Kids, Love and a Little Craziness, Moments with Maisie, Tate r Bug. And if anyone else wants to try for a post a day for a month, just give a yell and I’ll link to you too! You can start anytime and then keep it up for 30 days. It’s a good way to break out of the winter blahs and have some fun with the blog again.
