Spring Cleaning at Camp Kreitzer

When most people talk about spring cleaning they mean taking down and washing all the curtains,  washing the windows, moving all the furniture and cleaning behind and under, etc. Well, at Camp Kreitzer we are sprucing up the outside. Our first big project was taking down the old tree house. I don't have a photo of it because we never let anyone play there from the time we moved in (May 2002). It was dangerous from the start. But after the winter snows it was hanging by a few nails and we had visions of it dropping on the kids' heads like Dorothy's house on the Wicked Witch of the East. So Larry pulled out the last remaining supports and down it came. Then it was break it up and drag it off time.

The pictures below are from the "almost over" stage of the project with just remnants of the roof and walls along with the ladder to load up and cart off to the dump. Then on to the next project. It never ends. Anybody want to vent their frustrations by whacking down bamboo or pulling weeds? Camp Kreitzer is understaffed and overworked. And we haven't even thought about opening the pool and cleaning the deck. That's next month's project.
