I must say a day of family play including miniature golf, bumper boats, and go karts was... fun, but wearying!

Other things to share:
This week's Objectivist Round Up
• contemplating all the delightful things he'd do if he could buy jail in Monopoly
• after convincing Andrew to play a game, he commented "Seems like we need an iPad". (The observant boy went to get it himself.)
• proposing in a bargaining voice that he'd make his lunches, but only if I read to him. (Um, that's his responsibility. Was that supposed to persuade me? He tried again with something closer to a polite request when I didn't respond to the "threat".)
• and a sweet moment regarding his athlete mentor...
I was just talking about play dates that he has with kids his age and he interrupted and started talking about his athlete mentor (Jordan).
I said, "Jordan's different, Jordan's..."
Cameron filled in "a cool kid!"
(There you go, 16 year olds that are willing to give roller coaster rides are more cool than any peer!)
