Boys will be boys

So, my plan today was to write a long overdue blog post and show you my progress on my Sweet Tea Scarf. I gather up my knitting and my camera and head out to the front porch for some natural light. I turn on the camera….and nothing. The battery is dead. I think to myself, WTH? I haven’t used this in days. Why is the battery dead? I get out my phone to try and get a progress shot for you, but as you can see it is less than stellar.

I will get you a better shot if I have time tomorrow, since there will be more packing to do tomorrow for our trip to Pittsburgh on Wednesday. I may even make some progress on it tonight, who knows?

So, I put the battery in the charger and decide to see what was on the memory card. It appears that my oldest son must have been in charge of the baby a couple days ago and was messing around outside. 2012 02 02_0334_edited-1.JPG

I was a little disturbed by the bare feet. I know it’s warm but it IS February! Of course the 15 year old in charge here was without a doubt similarly clad. Sigh.

Ah, the truck. His favorite outdoor toy, besides the basketball.

Why do they always head straight for the puddles like guided missiles?

I think he’s seriously considering whether he will get away with diving in.

Hmm…what’s going on in here? I see some swifts in need of sanding.

Let’s bring the truck in and load it up with sawdust, yeah that will be awesome!

Ah well, no worries. It all washes off at the end of the day.

You will be glad to know that no one caught pneumonia in the making of this blog post.
