Overheard Today

-----I was downstairs making supper and could hear all four children playing in the upstairs hallway. It was high-energy, make-believe, adventure play. Maybe you remember playing "Cowboys and Indians" or "Cops and Robbers."

But that's not the ultimate adventure for my kids. As I listened to their racing cars and demands for proper paperwork, I realized they were playing "Border Crossing."

-----Since Ethan had an afternoon doctor appointment, there were three kids walking with me to pick up Andrew after school today. Ethan and Jadon discovered that the snowbanks are all frozen solid. They enjoyed climbing atop the roadside heaps and balancing their way along. At one point, Jadon called out, "Hey, Mom! Look! I'm walking on water!"
