Titus and I were cleaning the school room of the Lego madness that always takes over (we now do school at the kitchen table...go figure!) They save all of their legos directions (or "maps" as they call them), so we have a box designated just for those. Here is the conversation that occured while we were cleaning.
Me: Titus, any maps you're not using, why don't you put those in the box. Just keep out the one you're using right now.
Titus: MOM!! I just thought of a great idea from what you said! Whenever we're playing with legos, we can just keep out what we're using and put the rest of the maps back!
Wow, what a brilliant idea. I wonder if anyone else has ever thought of that!!

7:45 Well, lessons were at 8 for Titus and Eli, so we're definitely not going.
8:00 Get through to local recreation center: "If you haven't received a call from your child's instructor, classes are still on!" (Whoops, missed Titus and Eli's last class)
Jump up to get ready for Justus' lesson (which is at 9:20) Call mother in law to let her know I'll be bringing a couple of the kids by 9.
8:40 Everyone in the car, dry clothes packed...did I mention it's been raining this whole time? Justus is hoping for a cancelled class. "…
