Sincerest Form of Flattery

I knew the minute I saw the pictures on Jamie's blog that my kids would love the idea. In less than a minute, they raced up the stairs for their books and Polly Pocket dolls. At the moment, they are designing a 6 level hotel on the fireplace hearth. The phrase "this is so awesome" has been uttered by Jack no less than 10 times in the last 10 minutes. I think it is awesome too. A big thank-you to Jamie and her kids!

Complete with a helicopter landing pad on the roof.



Jack's creativity is not limited to dollhouse building. Look at his fire boat.


The funny thing is that this morning I was having an actual panic attack about the clutter in the house. Mere hours later, here I am, encouraging all kinds of clutter and mess. They are happy, though we really do need to do some schoolwork. I needed a little perspective and Jamie provided it. For that I am truly thankful.

    1. when we were little, my sisters and I made our own Barbie city. The couch was the Barbie condo, the chair and loveseat were apartments. For some reason, mom would never buy us a Ken doll, so we chopped off the hair of a couple of Barbie's. And we always made all our own clothes for them.

  4. The book villages merge very nicely with homeschooling, don't you think? Highly creative and a lot of physics, too.
