Sometimes my kids get WILD ideas. And sometimes, if it's not against the law, I just have to let them go through with it. Like this little zip line idea.

There's something about watching kids figure out stuff on their own. Too often I want to step in, fix things, make it better. Too often I DO step in. I need to take a step back more often, because, really, this was super entertaining. I can't imagine all the hilarious stuff I've missed out on because I inserted myself into the equation.

And that was that. They picked up the pieces and put it all away.
All in a day's work.
Until next time, of course...
