There are two new past times in our house. One involves something I swore on many occasions would never enter our house.
Air soft guns.
The guns shoot small plastic bullets. The “official” purpose of the guns is target practice…the unofficial idea of course is that the kids are the targets. Steve and I asked around and did lots of research before giving in. So far, the boys are good about wearing goggles. The neighborhood boys meet up for air soft wars but the boys swear the bullets don’t hurt when you get shot. It’s still not my favorite idea but the boys are getting older and I am attempting to “live and let go”.
The other new activity is much safer.
The boys love to fish and don’t get to do it as often as they would like. Braxton, in all his ingenuity, found a substitute. Steve and the boys often sit in the driveway and “fish” with washers not hooks. They try to see who can get the farthest or who can hit the mail box. It’s nice peaceful fun for our gorgeous Fargo evenings…and good practice casting for the next real fishing trip.
Hope you are enjoying your summer too.
