Raising My Warriors
I said on another blog that I would post some pics of my kids in armor. Here is a begining of that with perhaps more later.
All three play especially hard and sometimes I worry about what they will do to neighbor kids. The boys are very fond of swords-because they see all the ones I have but theirs are dramatically duller than mine.
When I disposed of the afore-mentioned snake, my oldest son, helped put the two pieces in a bag and then in the garbage can. He was excited to tell Mom about how he helped but she really didn't want to hear about it. All he wanted to talk about during dinner was snakes and Mom finally had to demand that we not discuss snakes at all anymore. I tried changing the subject to spiders, my son's usual chief interest, but it only lasted about a minute until he was back on snakes. Popsicles had to be sanctioned and released to avert the revolution.
