Fort Jackson; Est. 2008
We boys have been digging a fort in the backyard. One part, a semi-triangular pit we have dug, is about 2.5 feet deep. It is surrounded by a dirt wall, which is about one foot high. The other section, is called "The Lookout". There are two platforms located in a tree. One, about 4 feet off of the ground, was built a few years ago. The other located at 11 feet 4inches above the ground, is the newly installed "Birds Eye View" platform. Papa helped us build it last weekend. It gives us really good views, that we've never gotten before. Daniel also installed spikes in the tree, so he and I could climb up about 5 feet more in the tree! The highest point accessible in the tree is 16 feet above ground level! We'll keep posting updates on our fort, as we change it.
P.S. Come Visit us, there is no admission fee! :)

The last part, is a small shack, which we built today[9-23-08]. It holds our "ammunition" (Pinecones), which we use to attack the "enemy" (an imaginary enemy of course) Daniel and the Younger Boys (Nehemiah, Noah, and Elijah) Took less than 15 minutes to put it together!
