We're down to one car for a little while. Yeah it's inconvenient at times, but it's also kinda' nice to have the imposed family time. Here's this morning's conversation on the ride to school ...
Megan: Why doesn't our roof ever have frost on it?
Me: It faces a direction that the sun hits more than houses facing a different direction.
Henry: Our house faces South. The houses you see the most frost on are facing North.
Amanda (pointing to the left and right): Is that way North and that way South?
Henry: So which way is East?
Amanda points to the West and Megan points to the East.
Me: Megan's right.
Megan: Ha! Ha! I got it right.
Amanda: Hey, she's bragging!
Megan: So what? You brag about your farts!
Amanda: I do not!
Henry: Well maybe you don't brag about 'em, but you sure do have a proud look on your face afterwards.
See what an edifying conversation we would have missed out on had we been able to take separate cars this morning?
