Tim announced on Saturday that he was taking the girls on a field trip.
They were all excited and asked him where he was taking them. They wanted to know how far away it was and when they were going. Their facial expressions changed when he said it was a field trip in the house. When they asked again where they were going and after some thoughtful thinking he replied, "To the land of running waters." The guessing began.
"Are we going to have to CLEAN something?"
"You're going to make us clean the shower, aren't you?"
"Are you going to make us clean the toilet?"
Their agitation was brewing. They wanted to know right then and there where their "field trip" was to. Finally the time came when Tim decided it was time to disclose the location of their destination.
He asked the girls to follow him, leading them from the entry way, through the living room, through the computer room, into the kitchen, into the hallway that leads back to the entry way.
They were not amused.
Off the hallway is a half bath. Tim stopped and opened the door and invited them into "the land of running waters."
Still not knowing what the field trip was for Tim began with Exhibit A..........
So they watched and frowned and tried to be irritated and even snickered a few times.
I guess sometimes you just have to roll with it! :)
