While we were watching and waiting for the diggers/plumbers to do their work .. we played a very long game of "sorry" with grandma and grampa. We had high drama when the digger went through the power lines and the phone lines; despite the fact that they were supposedly marked. Then the kids learned some new vocabulary words when the electric company, plumbers and contractors discussed whose fault this drama was. L managed to see the bright side (of course, we were not the ones with no water, no power and no phone) that "It is not everyday that we get to see the wires under the ground." The kids were very impressed by the shear number of wires inside of a cable. Pretty neat.
