2 Girls and a Boy
My sister-in-law and brother-in-law are sunning on the beaches of Cancun this week.
Yeah, I know, "jerks".
Actually, they are not jerks, just 2 people desperately in need of a vacation together. I am sure many of you can relate to that.
I have their youngest for the week. J is 10. J is a boy.
Boys are different than girls. Not only in the physical sense, but all around. The girls are loving having a little brother for the week. J is on the same jump rope team as B, so they normally hang out a lot. One major difference between the girls and J is that J has the SMELLIEST soccer bag I have ever come in contact with. 2 pairs of cleats, sweaty shin guards and clothes that go back a few years equals very smelly bag. I walk through the kitchen and the smell tries to tackle me and take me down. Yes, time for the bag to hang out in the garage.
The 3 have been having a hilarious time taking their pictures with the computer camera.
Then, this afternoon they went outside and played catch, I mean fetch. The dog caught the ball more than their gloves did. The laughing and giggling that was going on, was enough to warm my heart for a month.
Maybe I can convince Kath and Tim to go away for a week every month?!
PS: Tomorrow is the last day to sign up for Chris' book!
