is to have great friends. Who have kids much older than Emma. They give us great stuff that their kids have outgrown. This time we hit the jackpot. We were given a wooden play structure. Our friend even brought it to us on his trailer, from three hours away. Awesome. We haven't assembled it yet because he also brought us a gallon of stain to treat it with before we assemble it.
Yesterday we found that Emma could climb the thing on her own. But it really looks scary because the rungs are way too far apart and the handles at the top are too far for her to reach. She gets the final grip by sticking her fingers between two floor boards. We'll need to make her a safer ladder or I may have a heart attack before July 4th.
Today the stain was painted on so Emma couldn't climb the ladder. She contented herself with playing with the rope and the slide which is laying on the ground.
I'll post a picture of the whole thing when we finally get it together.
