March 11, 2014 – After many cold days in Ohio, yesterday was a welcome break in the weather. As I came up the driveway I was glad to see that Drew was unplugged from all electronic devices and actually outside playing! Upon further investigation this is what I observe.
The boy appears to be hard at work burning a rock. ?!?!?!?! Yes, my eyes are not deceiving me. He has a torch. It is producing a flame. He’s concentrating it on a single rock in the driveway.
Leave it to Mom to ask the obvious as she walks past him…”Bub, what are you doing there?” He proceeds to inform me that he is going to “turn this rock into lava.”
<sigh> “Carry on.”
