rare...

i have had two good afternoons this week where my boys have played peacefully & nicely together for an hour or longer. woohoo!!! i don't get very many of these days, sad to admit. i am always talking with them trying to teach both of them to share, to be considerate of each other, take turns, that family (esp bothers) are so important. i pray that all my words are sinking in & one day they will grow up & have a great brother bond. i know that there will be fights & disagreements between them, but i want to teach them that family, esp the bond between brothers is so important. i know this only from experience with my 3 brothers that i LOVE so very much!
the pictures below are them making a fort with EVERY toy, bike, chair, & anything else they could move themselves that was in the backyard.



today they played in the mud. they LOVE to play in the mud. they would do it everyday if i would let them, but usually i say no because they are a MESS to clean up with afterwards!



we ended with a bubble bath full of LOTS of laughs!

Great Pictures! I always loved playing in the mud and rain when I was a boy and my Mom would let me.... I don't think we had bubble bath back then! Lyt!
