The kids have a game that they like to play called "Bear". The game bear began at the Crosswood house. Joseph was inspired to teach this game to our family when he was in 2nd grade and played it at a friends house. Joseph came home and taught it to our family. The game involved everyone staying on the main floor while someone went and hid in the basement, then everyone coming down the stairs into the basement and trying to find the bear without being eaten by him. Corey was usually the bear, and he's a pretty good one too. So we played "bear" many times at that house and have played it at this house before the carpet was taken out of the basement. But since the carpet has been out for the past 3 years, they haven't played it that much. On Sunday, the kids knowing that the carpet would be returning to the basement on the morrow, excitedly told each other "now we can play bear!!" But why wait, let's do it now! We still have stairs we can descend, so yay, everyone upstairs!
