Tent Day

One of the girls favorite activities is tent-building. Using blankets, furniture and weights (books, bags, toys, etc.) to fashion a playing space.
They LOVE this. They can spend hours doing this... In fact, I'll probably never understand the fascination they have with building tent spaces. They maybe spend 10-20 minutes in there after spending an hour building the perfect tent.
Frustration with falling tents sends Deborah into hysteria faster than anything else. And Abigail delights in pulling down Deborah's tents... Or at least that's what it seems like. Really, it's just that stillness is essential to maintaining the stability of Deborah's makeshift tents, and Abigail is NOT still. Not even when she's sleeping.
