Silver Linings

An interesting lesson in family togetherness came along yesterday. While largely unsupervised, Son Number Three climbed up on top of the six foot tall bookcases and pushed all the boxes of photographs off, creating an organizational disaster. The task of sorting out the random piles was daunting but Wife Number One and Only was up to the task. There was a bright side to it, however. (Well, two bright sides. The other was that I didn't have to do anything to help.) We took the opportunity to look over years of pictures that we otherwise never would have. So if you'd like to have a few hours of family bonding, allow your twelve year old to babysit, fall asleep on the couch, and remain unaware until you walk into the room and shout, "Oh my goodness!!"
