With Mama pregnant longer than she's ever been and being out of commission, for the most part, Daddy (also known as The Hero) has been running the house and doing a lot of activities with the children. They are greatly enjoying the time with him!
One evening, Chris set up the camping tent in the bonus room, put a television in there, and let the kids drag all their sleeping bags and blankies up there. We had to laugh when not one child lasted the night up there but, as each one was actually ready to fall asleep, he or she came back to his or her own bed.

Today Chris decided to teach the family about how small fire extinguishers work, so he set a fire in the back yard and let John put it out: a great lesson and yet the kind of thing Mama would never do!
