What our backyard and the Great Wall of China have in common

The first thought I had this morning when I woke up was a happy one.  I thought, "It's Friday!"

Then I remembered yesterday was Monday.

Last Friday evening found us at the Verizon store.*  That always takes a soul-numbing amount of time and we know because we've been there a lot.*  While there, Mark killed some time by looking up our house on a map on a ipad.  In our backyard on the satellite image was a picture of the fort our boys built last year.

Braeden said, "I remember when I was a little kid and I learned that the Great Wall of China was so big you could see it from space.  That used to mean something.  Now you can see everything from space."

I told him the fort they built in our backyard was the same size as the Great Wall of China.  It still means something.

*Dear Verizon,

I have never had such negative feelings about a company that I continue to do business with.  Curse you for having the best network because you have the worst customer service.  In America.

Is the fort still standing or did it just happen to be there on picture day?
