Driving about yesterday I spotted a cute tree house in a back yard. We have a pecan tree which is perfectly suited for a little house. I figure to meet the guidelines of our historic neighborhood, it would need to be in the craftsman style though I'd use a forced perspective to make it suitable for a child's imagination. The rope ladder is to keep the monsters out.
My son loves the book, we are starting week two of two readings every night before bed. Each time he sits at the table to do any activity that involves a crayon, pencil or piece of paper he informs me, "I have to get to work; I have to create (said crate)". It's cute. And it reminds me that architects create. For better or worse, creating something everyday is pretty darn special....even if today it was just a few doodles.
