There are 8 kids in my backyard right now. 6 of them are boys. Needless to say, there is some serious roll playing going on involving light sabers, bazookas, and army men. There were a few girls over, too, but they quickly retreated to our neighbor’s yard. There was definitely too much boy going on for them!
I’m sitting in the kitchen, keeping and eye and an ear on what’s happening. I happened to look up from blogging just in time to see Logan moon his friends. Awesome. They of course laughed and laughed, so of course Logan had to do it 2 or 3 more times. I was just about to give the “we don’t moon our friends” lecture when he was distracted by an incoming explosion and had to hit the dirt.
The other day, Logan and Camryn were playing together in the backyard. Camryn was hanging out in her favorite backyard spot.
Logan informed me that he was going to play hide and seek with Camryn. He carefully chose his hiding spot.
“Where’s Logan?” I asked her.
There he is!
She got such a kick out of this game. I just love seeing her play with her big brothers!
Now that it’s almost 5:30, I’m going to have to break up the boy fest in the backyard. Makes me just a little bit sad and almost wish it was still summer and they could play outside to their heart’s content. But, alas, first grade is calling and there is reading to be done and dinner to be eaten and baths to be taken and bedtimes to stick to. So long, sweet summer. We’ll see you next year.
