The lights are off and everyone is home. Earlier this week, due to the ice storm, the power was out at our house from noon until 5 am the following day. Tara and the boys off on another adventure. The boys were excited.
They fending off the imposing darkness with flashlight sabers and a lantern, while gathering around the heater, like a campfire. They colored and played. Snuggled tight in their sleeping bags they got to camp out in the loft.
It's easy sometimes when things happen to label it a problem and get discouraged. One man's problem is another man's adventure. I guess it's all in how you look at things.
