Sunday's Gratitude Post

I have come to love the lowly power outage. Today we were sans electricity for about three hours. 

My kids' first reaction was annoyance and impatience. Then the blooming of imagination took over. In those three hours they ...

shoveled rocks and dirt
created a dirt slide
created a mudslide from the dirt slide
figured out that pizza boxes, frisbees, and laundry baskets don't slide very well in the mud
went swimming
laughed, argued, and played.

It was glorious.

  1. You should totally schedule one of these at least once a week. Have Howard go fiddle around in the breaker box or something on his way off to work. :-)
