Little guys are handy to have around, in fact, they even enjoy lots of the things we do. Some of it is to our shame.
For example, at Saturday's football game, Andrew’s team won, even though the day was really hot.
Owie was a little embarrassed at Mimi Marti’s sun protection get up, so he put on his Green Lantern mask, so as not to be recognized by any of his friends. Of course with the mask, he was only too happy to sit on Marti’s lap.
Later on, I put the boys to work. Child labor laws? What’s that?
A while back, I broke the body on one of our scooters taking it out of the Element. I bought the replacement parts and Andrew, Owie and I took on the project to fix the scooter.
They were very helpful, especially when it came to finding the nuts and bolts that Pa dropped down into the inner workings of the scooter.
We got it all done and the scooter looks as good as new.
On the weekends, the boys enjoy sleepovers at our “house”. Andrew is quite the chess hound and whips my butt with embarrassing regularity.
Later, Owie and I worked on a 3D puzzle of, what else? A Coast Guard helicopter. I was glad he was able to figure how the puzzle pieces went together and he showed me up!
I’m thinking I’m seeing a pattern here. ;c)
Today, we further put them on another slippery slope…
They latched on to the whole concept and in a couple of hours found four out of five caches we looked for.
They both signed the log books in the caches.
They really enjoyed hunting for the caches. It’ll be even more fun when we get Marti’s new GPS figured out completely.
It doesn’t matter what we do with the boys, they love every minute of the time spent with them. The memories we’re making are priceless. All our efforts to go fulltime in our Journey have been worth it. :c)
