**Bit of background**
Brad suggested a screwdriver so that I could take the doorknob apart from the inside (screws are on the "in" side of the door). Zach tried, he went to the storage room and found the screwdriver (which in itself impressed me as I am not sure I could find the right one) and came back up. Problem was it wouldn't fit under the door.
Then, in a moment of clarity, I saw my knitting bag. I quickly found a knitting needle and passed it to Zach under the door. He began trying to pick the lock with the needle. It worked!!!
Zach was SO proud of himself. He opened the door, came in and hugged me and then started comforting Logan who was still in the throws of despair wailing "I thought we were going to be in here forever!!!"
I have said it before and I will say it again. ADHD kids are good in a crisis. Screw that, they are Rock stars in a crisis.
So Zach now has a bit of a swagger in his step today. He was really proud of himself and rightly so.
