Mike is off on a business trip for the week. Before he left, he decided to spend some quality time doing crafts with the kids.
Of course, his first idea had to involve fire. He wrote the message using lemon juice, and then held a tea light underneath until the message showed up. Emma liked this activity, although it took a long time for the letters to show up. This is obviously an activity that requires a lot of parental supervision. Mike says it’s easy to burn the paper. He remembers doing this with his aunt as a little kid, and she actually caught the paper on fire.
This last picture has nothing to do with Mike, but I thought it was really cute. Emma spent about half an hour reading Johnny books in their room this afternoon. He sometimes paid attention and sometimes read his own book at the same time. Just like Emma does when I read books to her.
