It’s raining men…

Alternative title – “A week in the life of a mom of boys”

This week they dug up the backyard in an attempt to create a tunnel to the neighbor kid’s house three doors down.  And when one hole didn’t work, they’d try another…



They practiced their spelling and punctuation….


They used Dad’s tools….this time it was the hacksaw on the dogwood that is mere weeks from blooming…


They exercised their minds with creative problem solving.  A Lego warrior had fallen into the great abyss (otherwise known as the hole in the middle of the concrete picnic table) and they theorized that dumping a case full of cokes that Mom doesn’t drink anymore might FLOAT the warrior back up to the top so that they could rescue him.  When that didn’t work, they just piled the bottlecaps on top of him and buried him in a dignified manner.


Only the Lord has saved them from a similar fate…..
