This week Chris has been home on vacation. It's been nice because they've been goofing around in the garage and out of my hair. Sunday night, they emerged from the garage smelling of sawdust and victory, for they had built a giant crossbow!
Chris told them they had to wait until the morning to try it out. Have you ever seen two more puffyeyed, unkept children? The LEPT out of bed the next morning and ran strait outside to try it out.
The scary thing is, it works really well! Chris assured me that it wasn't wasted time. He said that they "talked history" the entire time they were in the garage. Then he said "ya know, they remembered a lot of stuff from school this year!" and I just said "that's the beauty of it isn't it?" I mean really, how many of your year end reviews involved building a giant crossbow?
