This is the rope that John measured as "One hundred fifty sixty thirty!" He LOVES this rope. The boy has thousands of dollars worth of toys at his disposal and he would spend hours with this rope just tying it to things and then untying it and tying it to new things. I am not exaggerating when I say that this rope is as long as the house. In one of the rare moments that it was not tied to something, I had John walk down the hallway with it. I was in the living room and he walked all the way into the master bedroom and then into the master bathroom with it.
We also used the rope to decorate the dog's bed, connect two "boats" (aka couches), entertain the cats, make really long non-venomous snakes (because John took the venomous out of it so it would be nice), and other things that I am forgetting at the moment! By the end of the week he was very proficient at tying knots, even if he didn't really know what he was doing. But not always so good at getting the rope untangled. We had a few frustrating moments over this. But we learned, "It's okay because sometimes you have to practice!"
