The children (oddly the girls especially) have been fascinated with construction work!
As we pass a site with workers and equipment, our van erupts with cheers! In fact, coming home from piano last week I took an alternate route to (gasp) miss the construction. I thought perhaps the children wouldn’t notice–I was wrong, of course. They were gravely disappointed. I’ve since made sure we take the slower route, right through construction zones.
The girls began asking to wear the brightest clothing they own. How lacking their wardrobes are: they own very few dresses in neon-orange!
Secretly I ordered construction hats (a dozen for just $5.95!), and cones (which should be fun for many games through the years). Just for fun I also purchased some wrist ribbon things to wave as flags.
I didn’t tell them what I ordered, but played up the surprise factor, divulging only that a box was coming. Each day we checked the online tracking and followed the shipment’s progress on the US map! (Sneaky little geography lesson, huh?)
My little construction workers are thrilled!
