I am working on a DVD project today. So while the rest of my family is playing around outside in the warm sun, I am sitting in a shaded room making video edits. A few minutes ago my computer was taking some time to process something so I went to the kitchen for a soda.
As I passed the screen door that opens onto the side porch, I looked outside to see Alex teaching Sam to, get this: melt crayons with a magnifying glass.
Let me give you a minute to process that. Oh, and by the way, remember that Sam is five years old.
And, as I write, I hear Sam say, “Dad, can we make a fire again? I want to do the fire!”
[Note to Alex: Remember how you’re supposed to ask me before you start fires? This qualifies.]
