BP has been busy finishing the boys’ playset.
Most of the materials came from a former student of mine who is now in (GASP) high school and, go figure, not really in need of it anymore.
The set of stairs you see in the picture was actually the stairs that used to lead up to our back door. They had to be rebuilt during our renovation process.
BP built a ramp on the other side of the slide so the boys have something else to climb on and basically created the pirate ship that you see. There is a sand box underneath and lots of space for imaginative play.
This process started last summer, before our renovations to the outside of the house began. But once those were underway, we would not allow the children to play outside among the metal, nails, and other construction debris around the yard.
This spring, he finished the actual structure.
Yesterday, he made it look cool.
