While I’m trying to instil some virtues in my crew, they are working on their sense of humor. I’ve been cleaning out cabinets the last couple of weeks in hopes of getting rid of stuff. We have too much stuff, but doesn’t everyone? Well, we’re getting rid of some of ours. While digging through some of it I ran across a Scrabble game that I purchased at a garage sale. I had high hopes of using the letters for all sorts of language arts games, crafts, etc. It’s been in the cabinet for almost three years now, so I decided that it was time to do something with this “letters missing” scrabble game. I took two of the trays and all of the letters that were there (which was almost all of them) and set it up in our living room on a side table. The letters I poured into a bowl that Austin had made with his two little hands. After searching the bowl for letters that would spell “kindness”, I put my word on its little wooden tray and walked away. I didn’t say a thing. No one noticed for a couple of days and then “kindness” was replaced with “blindness”, “trust” became “rust”, and “mercy” became “me cry”. While I’m trying to instil some virtues in my crew, they are working on their sense of humor. Search your house for your Scrabble game and get it out – it will make everyone smile. I can’t wait for guests to come over so that they can take a turn.
