Tree kids




.....................................................................................................................................

They played in their new build tree house "The rescue club" for hours, despite chilly windy weather. One of them even ate her breakfast in it, sat there til her lips were blue of cold. Made me think of one favorite book, Klätterbaronen (The Baron in the Trees) by Italo Calvinos. Topshot, a mobile pic, notice the strange color effects on the ground.

I forgot all about that book! And the invisible Knight. I can't remember the third story. Wow. I must have lent it to someone...

Love these pics. Isn't is amazing how, if something is great, things like weather just doesn't matter to them!

there is also a treehouse workshop run, in part, by Peter Nelson who wrote the treehouse book. wouldn't it be great to learn to build one!

love all these pics! the top of the kids turned our super cool with the weird coloring. i LOVE kids handwriting, especially this.
Enzo was just yesterday playing in the neighbor kids yard--their day has just built a platform just like this in their tree. so cool.
