BoyGeeding has just been introduced to paper football and he loves it. It was fun spending about an hour with him on Saturday teaching him how to fold one and flick it. I have to admit it took me a few tries to remember how to make a decent paper football. Later in the day, I wandered off to accomplish some chores and couldn’t find a certain cardboard box I wanted to store some stuff in. Lo and behold BoyGeeding bogarted it and made his own football stadium. What I love about this is that a good portion of his Saturday afternoon was spent using his imagination, paper, cardboard, markers, and a few straws – he was thoroughly entertained without any screentime or any toy bought at a store.
I mentioned WifeGeeding recently visited the Biltmore Estate. I’m certain a decent chunk of that place (along with similar mansions which offer tours) which is closed off are empty and unfurnished rooms. The place has 250 rooms in the house, including 35 bedrooms and 43 bathrooms. Surely, over the years, furniture was sold and sections of the house were simply closed off.
