Sometimes as part of family home evening we have an impromptu lesson on how electricity/wiring works with a hands on demonstration involving mending broken strings of Christmas lights.
That's 'cause our dad is pretty awesome. I am really really lucky that a man like that would choose to spend his life with me and be such an incredible father to our little brood. He is my favorite person ever.
(And sometimes we keep our bathroom faucet in the background of the living room until we can get it properly installed...that's just how we are.)
No day around here is ever boring (heaven forbid) but also no day around here is ever wasted. We try to make sure that something good comes out of every single day for our family. Sometimes that looks like jokes over dinner and sometimes it is more like service projects for the neighbors or stories on laps in the living room.
It is good to get these growing peeps together for pretty much any moment because family is built moment by moment until that foundation of tiny pieces is so strong it can support us through just about anything.
At least that's how I see it.
Plus, lessons on electricity are a good thing.
