Ride 'em, cowboy

This is what the kids are busy playing right now -- they have turned the couch and cushions into a wagon, a bar stool into a horse, and a jump rope into reins, and they ride wildly and then "fall" off the wagon onto the ground (which they have conveniently padded with extra cushions).

I love to watch their imaginations soar! ...thanks, Mom, for all of the hours you let us "mess up" the house so that we could build forts, is a wonderful memory that still sticks with me and helps me on the days when I am tempted to just see their play as a mess to instead remember the magic of a child's imagination...
