This week, I thought Maggie needed some extra time spent on military training - more specifically, working on the construction of really cool snow forts. We've been spending a lot of time on the basics, and I thought I'd have Mom document this week's STT with a few photos. Let's get busy!
Here we are, working on the really cool snow fort on the north side of our driveway:
|"I should dig for all I'm worth up here, SGT Zim?"|
"That's right kid! Go crazy! Let me know if you hit any snags. I'm packing the base."
Hands-on training is so important!!!
|"Let's see how you're doing up here, Maggie!"|
"I think I've dug us in pretty good, Zimmie! I mean SGT Zim."
She's actually a natural, but being a Drill Sergeant means I need to push her to improve, so she can really excel!
She did a GREAT job - and I was just kidding with her! I told her as much, then we play bowed and had a little Siberian-style fun!
|"Oh, Zimmie! I thought you were serious!"|
"Nah, kid! You did GREAT! Now, let's have some fun!"
After we played a bit (for some reason, it's hard for Mom to take pix of us playing and hold onto our leashes at the same time), Mags went over to another of our really cool snow forts.
Usually after STT, we cut everyone some slack and only work a partial day, but the work ethic is strong in little Maggie! I'm so proud of her!
Work hard, play hard! I better catch some sack time while she's conked out.
