Sitting back and listening...

I sat back in my chair and just carefully listened to the chatter of the kids upstairs.  They were getting Tuesday's work done but in a creative way.  Emily had her cell phone out and found some sounds that were the same as fire drills at school and earthquake and  So they were doing emergency drills today in the girl's room.

A short time later I kept hearing more of her cell phone they had a school bell going off and then I would hear the stomping (not pitter patter) of their feet as they ran to a spot and sat down where they had a timer.  Now they are working on their schoolwork..."school" style.

Kind of reminded me as a child on my perspective of what real "school" would be like and the imaginative play that friends and I would take part in.
