After seeing Alida's list making on the blog, grandpa and grandma sent her a package of infamous Helmers notepads. I'm pretty sure our family has kept the manufacturers in business single-handed in this electronic age with our list making inclinations.
Turns out, the notepads were treasured by all (thank you for thoughtfully sending many). And here I found the boys huddled around their lamp, well beyond bedtime. Here they are making lists of characters for some game they are creating. These, the children who could not be convinced to pick up a pencil for their homework.
