Sam and Ben set the blocks up like dominoes, but they got a little too elaborate and it didn't work. Jordan and I set ours in a straight line, and the wind knocked them over.
Then Jordan and I named each of the wooden blocks and labeled them with permanent markers. We made up some of the names, but some of them we named after our favorite characters (Dustfinger, Hermione, Hobbes, Gus, Lassiter, Edmund, Susan, Eustace . . .) The boys laughed and then made lots of suggestions.
Sam, Ben and Peyton tried to build a giant tower, and then we tried to build a wall. The wind knocked it over, and the boys insisted on turning the names upside down.
Jason climbed the mulberry tree, and Ben poured water on people's heads, and everyone had fun dodging and stacking wooden blocks. Who knew that a giant jenga set could provide so much fun?
