March 15 - Mystery Elves Obstacle Course

I gotta tell you, this Daylight Savings switchover is messing with me. Waking up in the dark is no fun, and keeps me all sleepy-like. I'll get used to it eventually, but it sapped my enthusiasm this morning.

Today was Mystery Elves Obstacle Course, in which I try to get my kids to clean up the house under the guise of running an obstacle course. It worked a little better than it did last time, and I managed to get the kids to bring a bunch of stuff that didn't belong in the living room back into their room, but I didn't get any good pictures of it.

 This terrible shot of Lyric's butt as he ducked under the table was the best I got. For real. Guys, I'm sorry, you should expect more from me.

Figuring out good shots for the blog is a relatively new concern for me, and I'm still learning. Next time I'll try and get a good before/after shot at least. 

But more importantly, tomorrow is the Treasure Hunt, and so today was my prep day. I just finished the notes, and it promises to be a pretty good one. I talked with Zephyr a bit about it yesterday, and we're going to try and have Lyric be the leader of the hunt this time. I want to see if Zephyr will enjoy being in a more supervisory role... it's an experiment. Stay tuned!
