Life here is always exciting, but never has it been more announced than in recent weeks as my kids have grabbed on to a new phrase.
"Preeepare to be Amazed!" can be heard about fifty times a day, mostly in reference to the electronic invention-thingy they are...um...inventing?
Normally, I'd take a picture of it but since I can't I will attempt to describe this battery powered device. Imagine, if you will, a McCann's steel cut oatmeal tin turned upside down. On top of that are the pieces of wires, tabs and stuff taken from a small audio player once part of a cackling Halloween toy they trick-or-treated. There are several bolts as well, the top part of an outdoor hose, some bread ties, bottle caps, industrial staples, and a 12 watt light bulb. These things are all tangled up together and the boys are just trying to figure out how to attach the batteries to make this invention "work."
It is just a matter of time, I am sure. Gives me plenty of time to prepare to be amazed, anyway.
