Heather's challenge for the Adventurer's Club is becoming more difficult each month. Well it's either that or my thinking cap has slipped somewhat! This time I wanted to get in early, so I took advantage of the fact hubby has gone away for a few days.
It was Sunday, and we all got together to decide what adventure we would tackle that involved a travel case. I asked them all, "What do you think we should do? Should we have a day out?"
Seraphine replied, "No, it's too darn cold and besides you don't have a travel case big enough to take all of us."
"Yes that's true, you always take the tiny tots with you, but us bigger girls only get to go out on rare occasions." Nadia added.
"Okay then, what do you suggest we do?" I asked, hoping that someone in the room was going to come up with a great idea, or at the very least, something that would make this post interesting enough for people to read.
Then I heard a soft boyish voice say, "Why don't we bring all the cases out and see who fits in them?" I looked around to see Wren, dragging a small suitcase into the room.
I smiled and said, "I'm not too sure about that one Wren, it's pretty small." He opened it to look inside and quick as a flash, Hershey jumped in.
"Ah, this one's definitely my size." said Hershey, looking up at Wren. "I don't think so, it wouldn't close on your big fat head Hershey." he quickly replied .
So it was decided, we would bring all the "travelling cases" into the room and check them out. Mind you, in this home, travelling cases aren't always cases, sometimes they are make-up bags or lunch satchels, other times when it's one of my big girls, I use my laptop bag or whatever I can lay my hands on that they will fit in! In saying that, I do wrap them all very carefully or pop them in their sleeping bags.
After a lot of heaving and dragging,
a little pushing and shoving, with a few too many giggles thrown in here and there,
we finally had them all in one spot the floor. Of course, Cadbury and Lindt had to get in on the act too, there was simply no way in this world, those two were going to be left out!
It was no great outdoor adventure and there was no travelling involved, but all in all they shared lots of laughter and had fun with the travelling cases, while staying warm and snug indoors.
