I have to admit that I loved reading Harry Potter by flashlight to them. I was in the middle of two sleeping boys the first night, when I realized that I was trapped. Harrison was against the couch and Cameron had erected an elaborate tunnel system I wasn't sure I could navigate on my hands and knees. I ended up crawling through the support bars in the dining chairs, which I assure was neither graceful nor flattering.
Our living room was destroyed for an entire work week but man, that was fun.

Another thing we enjoyed was doing soap experiments. The first thing the boys did was whittle a bar of Ivory into oblivion. The bars were kind of small so I understand how their ideas didn't quite pan out; they were going for a boat and a ramp for Lego guys. The ramp actually worked out, just smaller than anticipated.
The second thing we did was microwave a new bar of Ivory soap and the results were awesome! It fluffed up like a big thing of cotton candy and felt like it too. We put ours on for 2 minutes and then it stopped growing.
|Harrison is too cool.|
