Trains on the mind

Bright and early at 10:00 am I'm hearing some thudding coming from Porter's room. What I didn't know was behind closed doors was actually a construction site.
He had moved his curtain and hooked it on his bed for a little lighting and put on his Percy the Train hat to set the mood.

He then started propping up his books to make a tunnel for his pal Thomas. When I opened the door he was starting Thomas' engine and letting him travel through the long tunnel to be rewarded at the end by the light of day.

I only got a quick witness of it because then he stood up like he might be in trouble and even started to take it down. Poor fella. Little did he know this was a camera moment to document his creative genius! In fact. while I started to take pictures of it all, he started to take it down to give me the hint that he was tired of taking pictures!

So cute! My favourite part was that it was the crack of dawn at 10am! :) You night owls, you!

I don't know how you have trained your kids to sleep in so late. I haven't been in bed past 9:00 for 12 years. I love the tunnel. Porter is such a cutie! He is really growing up. We need to come and visit this summer to catch up!
