Just another typical day in the Van household.
monumental and historic-her first fort! The introduction to the culture of forts, pillow fights, throwing children into pillow piles. Why last time we were at Trev and Dynell's I was inventing the triple double spin wa wa ha do soopie doopie wackie wackie spin which no child is supposed to be able to stand up from without falling down dizzy from. In fact I told them no one could live after I did it to them. They felt that was rediculous and could hardly wait to prove me wrong. Several weeks later Josh and Krista's kids were similarly impudent that no spin and throw into a pillow fort could make them so dizzy they would die. It turns out they are all still alive so the extreme sport of spinning them as fast as possible and throwing them into a fort or pile of pillows is not as lethal or frightening as I told them. They seem undaunted. I can hardly wait to watch Alexandra practice the extreme sport of forts, pillows, forts collapsing on children, spins, throws and whatever she and her mom and dad desire to add to such a venerable and historic game known generically as forts. What a great and historic moment has come to pass. This is even greater than the family discussion on cereals and their desireable uses and preparations.
This looks like so much fun!! I think Papa Van's forts sound dangerously fun. Can adults play too?
They can get a little tight for adult use. This one was only barely big enough for me. I followed my neices into the maze box they have at Cave of the Winds, and for a while I was worried I might die in there. I think Bryan would get stuck and die because of his height. My nieces could do it in less than a minute, but it was an epic, painful, and frightening trial for me.
