The kids (all four) were so excited about the fire. Some wanted to roast marshmallows. I overruled since I'd already made a treat for fhe. A rule had to be instated for the three little people. No one is to be on the tile (the hearth) when there is a fire.
Contest results: all three rooms pass again. (Actually I never made it up to inspect but they all said their rooms were clean. I will believe them...today.)
