Educational moments

Just a couple things from the last few days...

Youthful Wisdom: Kyle got this Brain Teaser trivia game for Christmas from Grandpa and Grandma Pat, and so we were playing it in the car. I ask, he answers-- and gets them right a fair percentage of the time; but my favorite exchange was this one:

Question: "Where do sponges live? In the desert, on the beach, or in the ocean?"
Answer: "Sponges...? They live in the kitchen."

Overexposure: We stayed with Bruce's sister Tammy and her family (husband David, and 4 kids) while we were down south. Sunday morning I was in the shower and heard a knock at the door. It's Julia, aged 2 1/2, and a potty training toddler cannot wait. So she comes in and sits down, leaving the door wide open, with only the shower curtain-- the transparent shower curtain-- between me and the very drafty hallway.

Eventually, Carolyn did come by and shut the door, restoring both modesty (which, I am reminded, is a learned trait) and thermal comfort to the bathroom.

Family living is always an adventure.
