"As long as she's not..."

That's what Tyler said the other night when the kids were playing outside. Obviously something is up when it's quiet. We peeked outside and saw that Shanna was attaching the disc swing to the other side of the play set. That's when Tyler said "As long as she's not building a zip line..."

I looked back outside, and sure enough, she was building a zip line!

We peeked through the blinds with our camera, documenting the adventure but ready to run out there the second she started to put Kaci into the seat!

She didn't make it quite that far, she came inside to ask for help with a knot and then told us her plan. We asked if she was really thinking of putting her sister in the seat, and she said that she was, but she would have tested the strength of the zip line with wood chips in the seat first.

At least she was thinking about safety tests at some level.. right?

Here is Miss Engineer, with her loyal side kick, ready to do anything her big sister says

Attaching the seat to the zip line

Admiring her handiwork

I suggested that maybe it could be a zip line for some stuffed animals. She asked if she could paint faces on rocks and use it for "rock people" I said "Sure" (But what I was really thinking was "as long as the zip line doesn't turn into a sling shot!")
