We’ve reached that point in summer vacation
What point is that, you wonder?
That point where, after hours spent telling me they are bored with me responding that it’s not my job to provide 24/7 amusement, the kids decide to take matters into their own hands.
Wondering what this is?
It was created by Tom, who, after rummaging in the garage for a while, used a boogie board, old cardboard, a Star Wars light saber, a golf club, an old PVC pipe, a broken shower curtain rod, and some small bike ramps.
It’s a large version of a marble run. He drops a golf ball and it runs the obstacle course he’s created. He spent several hours building it, re-arranging it, and then dropping the ball in it over and over again.
This is one of the things that I love about summer vacation.
