“We built our clubhouse together, the two of us. I painted and found some old furniture and made it look nice, but I don’t know nothing about construction. If I had made it by myself, the roof would leak and there would still be holes in the walls near the ground.”

“Sure, I did the patching and the roofwork—but it would have been a pretty pathetic place to hang out without all your work to make it feel like home.”

“Oh—but don’t forget Mom and Dad! It was Dad who let us use his old shed and paid for new materials. Otherwise we wouldn’t have this place at all. And probably we won’t have worked so hard if Mom didn’t make snacks and always say what a good job we were doing.”

“So it was a team effort, huh? No one could have made this great clubhouse alone.”
