Because there’s nothing to do on a lazy and power-less Saturday afternoon, we decided to make a small project: A treetop hang-out for the youngest daughter. She’s one boisterous and super active kid. She likes to do many activities. Outdoors. And, for that, I am a happy mom. I like to see her enjoying other activities other than toiling with gadgets and computers.
So, we venture out on the project without knowing where to start. We didn’t plan out the construction. The dad, being an “unskilled” carpenter gladly picked up his tools to begin the construction. The two other kids gamely joined in the “fun”.
The objective was to build a platform where the kids could jump from the tree ziplining towards the next tree. Zipline, that is! Kids are still fresh from their Treetop Adventure in Camp John Hay last December. That’s the inspiration.
No plan. No materials. Just some salvaged old planks of wood from the kitchen renovation few months back. So, please never mind the “design”.
The whole idea is for this little kid enjoy her treetop fun.
It’s nearing sunset and we’re almost done.
In the end, “A family that builds something out of scrap together…save the woods from fire.”
We all had a good laugh. Crazy family. I know.
Do things together as a family to promote a healthy relationship between parents and between siblings.
My name is Clarizza. Close friends call me Clarizze or simply Riz. I created this blog primarily to make an effort to journalize my thoughts which eventually became generalization of my whole life experiences -as a person, as a wife, as a mom, as a friend, and more. I know there isn't much to talked about myself or my family. Or, that my idea may not interest others. But, in some ways, I wanna share how I get to deal with the ups and downs of everyday life.
I am easy to get along with. That, I can promise.
