The bottom of the Fort Jacques property has a deep pit that was dug in preparation for the nursery/administrative building. One of the kids favorite things to do is play in the pit. When construction is quiet we’ll often take them down to play in a little boys paradise or mud, rocks, sticks, steep inclines, and berry bushes. They are very creative in their play and imagine the pit to be all kinds of things from an ocean of sharks to a lava pool, to a cave or a camping site (all thing they have seen and learned about through books and media in school). They end up pretty muddy but its well worth the extra laundry.
